EASY PEASY RED LENTIL PESTO PASTA
So this is my new go to meal. Not only is it filling and packed full of protein, its quick and easy and super cheap. Enjoy!
1 pack Red Lentil pasta (I used fusilli for this but any kind is fine!)
5 cloves chopped garlic
1 pack cherry tomatoes, chopped in halves
handful of rocket or spinach
handful of black olives
1 jar of vegan red pesto paste
1 pack baby corn, chopped
salt and pepper
juice of 1 lemon
Bring large saucepan of water to boil and add the pasta, along with a big glug of olive oil and a few pinches of salt. Cook until Al Dente.
In a large frying pan or wok, heat a little olive oil and add set heat to low-medium
add the chopped garlic and let it simmer and infuse the oil, be careful not to burn!
then one the garlic is cooked add the tomatoes & corn
saute for a few minutes then add the cooked, drained lentil pasta
fold all of the ingredients together and add another glug of olive oil to stop from sticking together
season with the garlic pepper & lemon juice
add salt and pepper to taste, top with the olives
