Pesto Tomato Pasta

Ingredients:

Directions:

Bag the pasta in a snack size zip top bag. Add the tomatoes and onions in a second snack size zip top bag. Put the pesto mix in a small craft zip top bag. Tuck in the oil.

To Prepare:

Add about 6 cups water to a 2 Liter size pot (if using a smaller pot, cut back the water as needed, so you don’t boil over). As the water comes to a simmer, add in the dried vegetables.

Once boiling, add in pasta, cook as directed on package. Lowering the flame and stirring often, to avoid boiling over.

Reserve about 2 tbsp cooking water, drain off rest. Stir in the oil and pesto mix, till combined.

Serves 1.

Notes:
