Chargrilled Vegetable Pesto Pasta

Wednesday, October 22, 2014

When it comes to cooking, I like to keep it simple and easy. This is super quick and easy to make and tastes delicious. Also you don't have to follow the ingredients that I've used, I literally just threw whatever I had in my fridge together. Mushrooms, tomatoes, chicken, prawns, scallops etc can be some suggestions that I have to switch up this recipe.

What you need (makes one portion- double the ingredients to make two etc):
Half a red onion
One pepper (or any other vegetable you wish to use!)
Olive oil
Extra Virgin olive oil

  1. First, heat up a non stick pan. Wash your pepper (or vegetables) and cut them up into big chunks. Dry them off with a paper towel and put them into the pan. (Don't add any oil to the pan). Keep the pan on a medium heat, and toss the vegetables every few minutes
  2. Put some water into your saucepan and you can use the kettle to boil the water so it saves time. Add some salt and olive oil to the water, then your spaghetti. Stir your spaghetti every few minutes to prevent them from sticking.
  3. Then, by this point your vegetables should be nicely grilled- red onions are perfect for this because they have an extra sweet flavour, add some salt and pepper to season.
  4. Drain your spaghetti- eight minutes is a good time, as the spaghetti should be al dente. Use cold water to wash your spaghetti then add some extra virgin olive oil to it. 
  5. Finally, combine your spaghetti to the vegetables, add a spoonful of pesto (more if you want it to taste stronger) and mix thoroughly.
  6. After taking some pictures of your wonderful creation to put on instagram ;) enjoy!
