Pasta pesto, a nice alliteration, but also a tasty dish if you have little time to cook 😉
Do you ever find that your weekly schedule did not work? As a result, you have to save yourself with a quick bite.
The magic word is … drum roll … pasta!
Cooking spaghetti, spirelli, tagliatelle, whatever. Add home-made pesto, possibly some arugula and cherry tomatoes … hocus pocus … eat!
Of course, you don’t need a manual for cooking pasta. I do have one for the vegan pesto.
This recipe is good for around 200 ml of pesto.
- You can eat it this way, but I like it best with cherry tomatoes underneath. You can also add other vegetables or grilled tofu.
- For a cheaper variant: replace the pine nuts with almond powder.
- Replace the basil with mint, kale, spinach, etc.
- Pesto is usually made with cheese, as a vegan, you can just leave it out. But if you still want a cheese flavor, you can add nutritional yeast flakes, as in this recipe. You can also use a piece of vegan cheese instead of nutritional yeast flakes.
