“Fast food”, not necessarily means instant noodles or junk food. I call pesto pasta my gourmet “instant noodles”. Recently, I am hooked on making pesto. Pesto is a versatile sauce with many uses. I like to use it to make a very quick, almost instant pesto pasta meal.

On the weekends, I will usually make a small quantity of pesto (just enough to last me for a few days) and keep the pesto sealed and chilled in the fridge. Whenever I’m hungry and fancy a quick meal, I will cook some angel hair (a quick cooking pasta which cooks in 2 minutes) and toss the pesto with the noodles. It takes me less than 5 minutes to whip up this plate with my ready stash of pesto in the fridge, almost the same time I take to cook instant noodles. How’s that for fast food? This is healthy and quite gourmet for a change from the usual fast food, and not bad for 5 minutes work. If you prefer it more fancy, you can also grill some seafood on the side and it will become seafood pesto pasta; the possibilities are limitless.
