Pesto pasta with vegetable salsa, How to Make

  • Step 1
    To make the pesto, place the basil leaves, pine nuts, garlic and parmesan in a food processor. Process until just combined, then slowly add olive oil and continue to pulse for a further minute. Keep refrigerated until required.
  • Step 2
    To make the salsa, finely dice all the vegetables. Heat oil in a frypan over medium heat and cook vegetables and garlic, stirring continuously, for 1-2 minutes or until the vegetables are just softened, but not coloured. Add vinegar and sugar, and season with salt and pepper.
  • Step 3
    Cook pasta according to packet instructions until al dente, drain, then toss through pesto. Serve topped with salsa and shaved parmesan.
