Penne pomodoro e pesto
Pesto and tomato sauce penne

Ingredients for 4 hungry people  


  1. Put on the stove 4L of water;
  2. Cut the dried tomatoes in strips;
  3. Heat up the oil and stir fry the dried tomatoes
  4. Add the tomato sauce and cook for 15 minutes;
  5. When the water's boiling add the kosher salt;
  6. When almost done add the pesto;
  7. Drain the pasta and cook for a minute in the sauce, serve warm.

Tip: it's better to undercook pasta by 1-2 minutes and let it finish cooking with the sauce, it will take more or less double the amount it would have taken in the water, e.g. if you drain it 2 mins early it will need to cook 4 minutes in the sauce.
