Some nights you really don’t feel like cooking, but you still want to eat fresh healthy food. That’s where a recipe like this cheat’s pesto pasta comes in handy. It only takes 15 minutes to throw together – quicker than picking up takeaway! And oh my, it is GOOD.
The angel hair pasta is so delicately textured, it’s like angels are singing in your mouth. I was surprised how much difference it made to the dish rather than using the thicker spaghetti.
I’m also in love with the little roasted cherry tomatoes. I’ve never been the hugest fan of cooked tomato, but this dish has completely changed my mind. I don’t know if it’s the roasting process, the balsamic drizzle or just using teensy little delicious tomatoes to begin with, but these soft sweet bursts of flavour made my tastebuds dance and left me wanting to add blistered cherry tomatoes to every weekend brunch I create now and forevermore.
Let’s take a second to chat about the marinated feta. I used Meredith’s Dairy goat’s feta, which is to. die. for. If you don’t have it available, I feel sorry for you. But just use some other sort of feta. It will still be good. Just not as good as mine. (Te he.)
