I’m always on a hunt for easy weekday pasta recipes, are you ? This one is ready in less than 20 minutes, and it has basically 3 main ingredients : red pesto, leek and gruyere ( or cheddar if you prefer). Yes, you can make your own red pesto, I’m sure it will be delicious :)! I bought mine. I’m convinced it’s pretty easy to make, all you need is sun dried tomatoes, olive oil, and Parmesan cheese.. But for now, I’m too lazy of a mom to try it. Maybe one day I’ll make one, and then I’ll try to convince you to never buy it again.. But for now just buy your red pesto, and spend this extra time with a cup of coffee (or tea, or wine ).. So coming back to this yummy red pesto & leek cheesy pasta, I’m sure you’ll love it! It’s a great busy evening recipe, and you can make it really healthy too, just use whole grain pasta and cut a bit on cheese ;)!
1 big leek
1 big onion
2 table spoons of red pesto
1 cup gruyere cheese (or cheddar )
Cut onion and leek, and cook it on olive oil until semi transparent. Add red pesto and pasta, toss in the cheese, leave on medium hight for around 2 minutes, or until the cheese has melted. Serve with some fresh basil on top. That’s it. Super easy right? 🙂 yet so good ! I hope you’ll enjoy it :)!
