Creamy Pasta Penne – In 10 minutes

pasta penne easy recipe basilCreamy Pasta Penne with pesto and lemon:
This creamy pasta is my new favourite quick supper. It’s filled with flavour thanks to the sautéed onion and garlic, and the mix of tomatoes and basil, plus a squeeze of lemon juice.

Just love stirring a few vegetabels into pasta dishes. It’s an easy way to get more veg in and the pop of red and greens looks so delicious too. It’s also a week savor on busy days and you only got 10 minute for a tasty dinner.

For this recipe I also made this delicious spinach pesto recipe to the dish drizzled on top of the pasta. It turned out so good and creamy so it’s worth giving that a try. Comment below if you have any questions making it.
