Ultimate Comfort – Pesto Pasta

Now I’ve seen a lot of  ‘comfort food’ on blogs in the past couple of weeks. But for the ultimate comfort food there can be only one solution – Pesto Pasta. It’s quick, easy and you can make it whilst sipping on a small glass of Chardonnay without disastrous results (which is more than can be said for Steak and Kidney Pudding).


  • Dried pasta
  • Onion
  • Red pepper (capsicum, bell)
  • Mushrooms
  • 1 jar of green pesto
  • Cheddar cheese


Put a large pan of water on to boil and then cook the pasta. Fry a chopped onion, red pepper and diced mushrooms.

Drain the pasta and add the cooked veg. Then stir the pesto into the mix and warm through.

Serve with grated cheddar. Easy!

Is that a glass of wine lurking in the background?

The whole effort took 15 minutes!

  1. Excellent recipe! When I am very hungry and tired, I usually prepare some pasta, pesto, a cun of tuna and parmezan cheese. In a couple of weeks a friend of mine will prepare a pesto evening, I am really looking forward to it!
