Dinner for one ??? Not a problem

Yesterday I was alone for dinner, as my darling husband went out for a team event of his office. Eating alone sucks, but what sucks more than it, is … cooking for one person. Yeah believe me, cooking for one is boring and annoying as using 1/2 onion or tomato does not make sense. Right??


Recently I found a solution for it, keeping yourself handy with Basil or Red Pesto sauce. So what ever day in a week, if I am having dinner alone. I just make a simple easy and a very quick pasta. These kind of sauce are so delicious and they can be used for making various dishes like pasta, sandwich, grilled chicken or fish.


1 Red or Yellow bell pepper

1 cup Penne Pasta

1 Tablespoon Red Pesto paste

dash of salt and black pepper (optional)

1 teaspoon Olive oil

grated Parmesan.


Cut the bell pepper dice and add olive oil to pan.

Saute bell pepper for 2 minutes and than add red pesto paste to it and give a nice mix.

Drain the pasta and add it to the pan, mix it nicely with red pesto sauce.

Garnish with grated Parmesan and Serve hot.


Happy Weekend
