Sometimes I just want to eat something simple and not so rich, I was wondering what to eat..then I remembered an easy dish I often to used to cook back in the UK.
You need some spaghetti (my pasta of choice, but it works fine with others), which you chuck in a pan of boiling water (bring it to the boil before you put the pasta in).
The water should have a sprinkle of salt in and a dash of oil (it stops the pasta sticking together, you can do the same when cooking egg noodles).
Cook for exactly 10 minutes (unless it’s quick cook pasta, then refer to the instructions). Drain the water off and mix it in a bowl with some olive oil and a generous dollop of butter.
After that load on some pesto and whatever else you have (antipasto, olives, mushroom and a dash of tobasco is good!).
Mix it thoroughly, it should end up something like this:
I used wild mushroom antipasto..
And black olive pesto..
After that (As it was a light meal, I followed with some awesome steamed pudding).
Steamed in the wok for about 20 minutes.
And eaten with plain vanilla ice cream.
Great satisfying meal, and very easy to prepare.Yeah I don’t feel like being so serious today.. Technorati tag: Food, Pasta, Pesto, Steamed Pudding
