Gluten Free Pasta with Home Made Pesto Sauce

Is there anything more comforting than a delicious bowl of pasta? This has become a staple in my house.

Method

Bring a large pot of water to the boil and season with plenty of sea salt.

Cook the pasta according to the instructions on the packet - all brands vary but always cook ‘al dente’.

Five minutes before the end of the cooking time spoon the pesto into a large mixing bowl and whisk in a ladle of the cooking water.

Drain the pasta and add to the bowl mixing well so that all the strands of pasta are coated in pesto.

Tip into a warmed serving bowl and scatter over the basil.

Enjoy!
