Pesto Tomato Pasta
- 4 ounces angel hair pasta, broken in half
- ¼ cup diced dried tomatoes
- 1 Tbsp dried onion
- 2 tsp pesto sauce mix
- 1 Tbsp or 1 packet olive oil
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.
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.
