Super Easy
This delicious pasta dish combines smoky bacon with pesto pasta. We've also thrown in some veggies to keep it nutritious.



1 onion

1 broccoli

Handful cherry tomatoes

4 rashers of bacon

1/2 jar of pesto

grated cheese

Let's Cook:

Get started by getting a pan of water and heating it up. Once it's boiling, throw in the pasta and cook for the time it says on the packet. About 2 minutes before the pasta is cooked, throw in the broccoli. Drain the water and set aside for later.

Now time for the bacon. Chop it up into small strips or pieces and chuck it into a frying pan. Sizzle for about 5 minutes before adding the onion. Use a wooden spoon to give it a quick stir occasionally.

Once the onions are soft, add the tomatoes to the pan as well as the broccoli and pasta from earlier. Scoop the pesto on top and then mix everything up. Leave it on the heat for a couple more minutes to make sure everything's hot before serving it up. Get some grated cheese on top and dig in!
