    Hi all,

    just had a gorgeous lunch, so thought I'd share it!

    Bowl of wholemeal pasta cooked
    add 2-3 light cheese triangles (depending on how much pasta you have!)
    then over heat stir and add a squirt of 'Gourmet Garden Basil'

    Tasted like a really creamy pesto sauce, was lovely!

    I put in about 2 teaspoons of the basil paste, so I think that's 2 syns, and used the cheese from my 'A' allowance.

    yum yum - could eat it all again!

    xx

    That sounds great. When I lived in Peru pesto was about a fiver a jar so people used to make their own using basil, spinach, milk and a feta-style cheese. That was amazing!!!
