Spaghetti with Pesto and Fresh Tomatoes

Vegetarian / Vegan. Serves 1

This is a very simple but tasty dish. There are many varieties of bottled pesto, find one that you really like the taste of.

Vegans beware, bottled pesto usually contains cheese but I have found some brands that do not. It is also easy to make your own pesto if you have access to good fresh basil and a food processor.

Multiply the quantities to serve more than person.


  • 1 large handful of dried spaghetti
  • 2 3 teaspoons bottled basil pesto
  • ripe tomato, diced


  1. Cook the spaghetti according to the directions on the packet then drain well and return to the pot. Stir in the pesto until the spaghetti is well coated, then stir in the tomatoes and serve.
