Broccoli Presto Pasta
“I made the broccoli pesto from Donna Hay Fresh and Light. I chose this dish simply because, when paging through a recipe book, a pasta dish always tends to catch my eye. My dad’s Italian so we grew up on pasta and, for me, it’s the best kind comfort food – perfect for this cold weather that we’ve been having. Plus, any pasta dish is always a winner in our home.
The dish really didn’t take much effort at all and, to me, it was a very healthy and tasty pasta dish. I added a touch of fresh chillies to it, just to give it a little extra flavour, but that’s just because I’ve been going through a chilli-loving phase at the moment and not because I thought it needed it. When I make it next time, I may add a touch of cream to make it just a little less dry and more indulgent."
