Quick Italian Supper (kitchen optional!)

Ciao Cucina!?

We have very nearly finished our DIY job in the kitchen, so food prep is to a minimum. With a young baby and half the kitchen in the dining room, tonight we had a quick, wholesome dinner inspired by those Tuscan trips..

Tuscan Sauce with Fusilli

The sauce is quick as I keep Thrifty Pesto in the fridge.
You will need  -
1 tin borlotti beans
4 medium size mushrooms
1 red pepper
100g soft cheese
100g spinach
1 table spoon Thrifty Pesto
200g Fusilli Pasta
Salt & Pepper to taste


Go Create!

In a pan saute the mushrooms and add the red pepper. Then add the borlotti beans. Melt in the pesto, cream cheese and wilt the spinach.
Bring the pasta to the boil in salted water and cook as per packet instructions. Drain and stir through pepper, lemon juice and basil oil.
Serve straight away.
Serves 2 - 3
Cook time - 20 mins
Thifty Pesto 
Simple Tomato & Pepper Sauce
