This is a very easy pasta dinner to make and also works really well to make in batches for a lunch box. Sometimes I add in cooked chicken of cured meat to add something special.

Ingredients – serves 2

-2 tablespoons of olive oil
-120g mozzarella pearl balls or shredded mozzarella ball.
-200g cherry tomatoes
-red onion
-small bunch of parsley
-chilli to taste
-salt and pepper

-Cook the pasta as to the instructions on the pack.
-Chop the tomatoes, onion,  parsley and chilli.
-Once cooked, drain the pasta and add the pesto, oil and all the ingredients and stir in well.
-Set aside to cool if you want it for lunchboxes.
