Serves 1


1 portion of your favourite pasta
1 tbsp SPICETUB Red Pesto Pasta Mix
1 tbsp olive oil
1 - 2 tbsp cream cheese

Optional extras for some fancy touch: Handful cherry tomatoes, 1 tbsp roasted pine nuts, Handful fresh basil, 2 tbsp semi sun-dried tomatoes


Cook your pasta as per packet instruction. Mix the SPICETUB Red Pesto Pasta Mix with 1 tbsp of water and let that sit for about 5min. Then add the olive oil, stir to combine and that is your pesto paste done already. 
In your pan, on medium heat, warm up your pesto paste and the cream cheese into a smooth sauce, stirring continuously. You might want to add a dash of water here to make sure the consistency is right. If you have chosen to add any of the extra ingredients, add them to your pan now and also heat through. Once your sauce is smooth and fragrant, add your cooked pasta to the pan and stir to combine. Serve and enjoy! How easy was that!?
