Yesterday, I made this tasty & quick dinner pasta recipe. I was home alone & wanted a quick dinner. I saw what I had in my pantry & fridge & came up with this.
I used Gluten-Free brown rice pasta spirals because I love gf pasta. It is much lighter on my stomach than normal pasta.
I also had fresh rocket leaves & a jar of rocket leaves pesto from Sacla.
Check it out! Make this tasty & dinner-for-one pasta, within 10 minutes.
Recipe: A tasty & dinner-for-one pasta, with seconds
350 gr Gluten-Free brown rice spirals pasta / I used the is brand: Rizopia Organic Gluten-Free brown rice pasta: fusilli
1 large red bell pepper, washed & cleaned, pad dry on kitchen paper, white seeds & white parts removed, cut into smaller thin strips & cut into 2
100 gr smoked bacon pieces
1 handful of fresh washed rocket leaves
3 to 4 coffee spoons of rocket leaves pesto. I used the brand Sacla. Jar opened, oil on top mixed into the pesto.
a fruity EVOO
1. Cook your GF pasta according to your packet instructions. My pasta needed to be cooked about 7 to 10 minutes. Drain well. Keep warm.
2. In the meantime, take a large non-stick pan & heat up on medium. When hot, add 1 to 2 tablespoons of the fruity EVOO. Swirl the oil round in the pan.Add the chopped red bell pepper pieces.
Fry them until halfway cooked. add some grinds of black pepper & some sea salt. Stir often. Place your pepper pieces at one side of your pan & add the smoked bacon pieces. Fry them until golden & cooked through. This will take a few minutes. Stir everything in the pan round so that the flavours can mingle. When ready, place a fitting lid on & keep warm.
3. Take your pot with the pasta & add 3 to 4 coffee spoons of the rocket leaves pesto. With a spoon, spoon it all around in the pot. Now, Add the bacon & pepper mix. Carefully, mix everything together. Finally, add 1 handful of rocket leaves to the pot & mix well. Taste! It has to taste fab! I added a few grinds of black pepper to the pot. Mix well with a spoon & serve at once!
