Why I Love This Recipe

This recipe is known the world over for its simplicity. It's a godsend on those working week nights when you're short of time and inspiration, and don't want to sink to a takeaway or beans on toast.


Ingredients You'll Need

100g pasta
Jar of basil / sun-dried tomato pesto
Tin of tuna / chicken breast
Sweetcorn / peas / olives
Grated cheese


Directions

1. If using chicken, dice and fry on a medium heat until golden on the outside yet moist in the middle.


2. Boil the pasta until al dente in a pan of boiling, salted water.


3. Drain the pasta before returning it to the pan. Season generously with olive oil and black pepper. Add a couple of generous spoonfuls of pesto, the tin of tuna or chicken, and any further additions (sweetcorn, peas, olives).


4. Mix it all up over a gentle heat, serve topped with a handful of grated cheese and more black pepper.
