My favorite Red Pesto Pasta! (V)

On Tuesdays I always have Bootcamp so it is essential that I eat well and that it's a dish that is simple and quickly made after work. This pasta is my all time favorite pre-Bootcamp meal and really easy to make. As a bonus it's vegetarian!

Duration: 20 minutes

Amount of servings: 1

The ingredients:

  • 80 gr whole wheat spelt pasta
  • Homemade Red pesto
  • 125 gr cherry tomatoes
  • Handful fresh spinach leaves or arugula
  • 40 gr feta cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Handful roasted pine nuts
  • Grated parmesan cheese
  • Olive oil
  • Salt & pepper

  1. Preheat your oven to 175 degrees Celsius and boil 1 liter of water in your kettle.
  2. Slice the cherry tomatoes in halve, put them in a baking dish and sprinkle them with salt, pepper, the oregano, some grated parmesan cheese and some extra virgin olive oil.
  3. Put the baking dish with cherry tomatoes in the preheated oven for about 10 minutes so the cheese is melted and the tomatoes are soft and cook the spelt pasta for as long as it says on the package. (During this time you can make the red pesto if it isn't already in you refrigerator)
  4. When the pasta is done, pour out the water and add your homemade red pesto to the pasta and mix it up until everything is covered. 
  5. Add a handful of spinach leaves to your plate and put the pasta on top of it. Finish it of with the cherry tomatoes, crumbled feta cheese, some grated parmesan cheese and the roasted pine nuts and your delicious quick and easy vegetarian pasta is ready to be eaten!
