PESTO & BACON PASTA SALAD

PESTO & BACON PASTA SALAD

This a follow up recipe for my Classic Pesto  recipe I posted last week. An easy, cheap and quick recipe for those nights then simplicity is all that's needed. 

Ingredients: (Serves 2)

 

  • 200g Cooked Pasta (I Used Fusilli) 
  • 4 Tbsp Pesto
  • 1 Tbsp Pinenuts
  • 30g Smoked Bacon (Cooked Until Crisp)
  • 50g Rocket
  • Freshly Shaved Parmesan

Method: 

  1. Cook the pasta according to the packet instructions. Once cooked drain and set aside to cool.
  2. In a dry frying pan, over a medium/high heat toast the pinenuts until they become golden brown.
  3. Add the fresh basil pesto, toasted pine nuts, crispy bacon and wild rocket to the pasta &  toss well.
  4. Divide between bowls and scatter with freshly shaved Parmesan, to serve.
