Stephen is out playing cricket today and I had planned on a quick lunch of spaghetti and puttanesca from the freezer. When I finally found the sauce buried at the back I saw that there were actually two servings and, not wanting to eat for two or let any any go to waste, I left it snuggling up to the chicken stock and re-thought my lunch options.

We bought a new basil plant yesterday so I decided to make up some pesto. With some trepidation I put my ingredients (basil, pinenuts, oil, parmesan, garlic and salt and pepper) into the Magimix and crossed my fingers that it wouldn’t let me down like it did yesterday (a handful of breadcrumbs for the veal, not a chance). It didn’t and within a few minutes the six ingredients had turned into a glossy, green sauce.

While I was waiting for the water to boil, I quickly cooked off some cherry tomatoes in a saucepan for about 10 minutes.

When the pasta was done, I mixed the whole lot together. I suspect it’s not all that authentic but it tasted good which was really what I was aiming for.

    And there were some left over toasted pine nuts for me to nibble on when I got home… yum!
