Gluten Free Pesto Pasta
Posted on June 18, 2017
Serves 4
Gluten free
Sugar free
Pesto - see previous recipe
About 40 cherry tomatoes
4 cups of Happy Earth People's Chickpea Pasta
(or a pasta of your choice)
Salt and pepper to season
Sometimes, when its cold outside and you're feeling hungry, pasta just hits the perfect spot. Since I avoid gluten, I naturally don't eat much pasta...well that is until I found the chickpea pasta by Happy Earth People - made from 100% chickpeas (or lentils...take your pick) It tastes just like the real thing, and is highly nutritious, and naturally gluten free of course. Dollop with your own homemade pesto and roasted baby tomatoes for the perfect winter meal.
Preheat the oven to 200C
Lay out baby tomatoes on a baking dish and drizzle with olive oil or coconut oil
Pop in the oven and cook until juicy and soft.
While these are in the oven, make your own pesto (see my pervious recipe for homemade basil pesto).
Cook pasta according to cooking instructions.
Once pasta is cooked and drained of all water, add back to the pot and mix in your pesto, however much suits your taste!
Spoon into dishes, top with roasted cherry tomatoes and season with salt and pepper.
Enjoy :)
