Minoo made a pasta dish with the pesto we made in the community kitchen. The pasta is made with tomato sauce and Swiss Chard pesto. The pesto adds creaminess to this pasta.
- tomato sauce
- Swiss Chard pesto
- bay leaves
- dried oregano
- dried basil leaves
- chili flakes
- a pinch of sugar
- ground black pepper
1. Cook spaghetti in salted boiling water as per instruction on the box until al-dante. Drain.
2. While the spaghetti is cooking, heat tomato sauce in a saucepan. Season with bay leaves, dried basil, dried oregano, chili flakes and ground black pepper to taste. Add a pinch of sugar to counter the acidity of the tomato sauce. Let simmer for 5 to 10 minutes.
3. Add tomato sauce to the drained pasta. Toss to mix.
4. Add Swiss Chard pesto.
5. Toss to mix well and serve warm. Serve with a salad on the side.
