Red Pesto Pasta Simple Supper

It’s a glorious hot and sunshine filled day in London today and when it’s hot I don’t want to spend time over a hot stove making dinner. This very simple super is quick, tastes delicious and is pretty healthy too.

Sew White simple super red pesto pasta

Red pesto is made from pine nuts, tomatoes, basil and cheese. Plus a little chilli if you fancy it. You can make it yourself or most supermarkets tend to stock a nice size jar which feeds about 4 for £1.

Serves 4


– 200g red pesto
– 320g pasta bows (roughly 80g per person)
– 300g baby/plum tomatoes– chopped flat leaf parsley
– extra pine nuts to decorate if you want


– Cook the pasta as per instructions on the pack.
– Drain the pasta and pop into a bowl with the pesto, tomatoes and parsley and give it a good stir and serve straight away.
– Enjoy.
