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
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.
