Quick Pesto Pasta With Sun-Dried Tomatoes, Olives And Toasted Almonds

Ready, set, cook!


Leigh Champanis-King |

Looking for a delicious pasta that won’t chain you to the stove for hours? Then this pesto pasta is just for you. It’s packed with flavour from basil pesto, sun-dried tomatoes and olives and gives you a satisfying crunch with toasted almonds. If you have the time, you can make your own pesto (recipe below – bonus: it’s vegan!) or you can buy a good-quality one from the shops, no one’s judging. Who has the time most days anyway?

If you want, you can also play with flavours: use a tomato pesto instead of basil and add fresh basil leaves. Or leave out the pesto altogether and go for more of a pasta-salad vibe by adding fresh tomatoes and basil leaves, as well as olives and toasted nuts of your choice.
