Being the night after the big day. I had a lot of tired, grumpy and kids. We needed something filling and quick. This meal didn't fail and at under £4.00 all in was great value for money too.

Yields4 Servings
Prep Time5 minsCook Time10 minsTotal Time15 mins

 1 Jar of red pesto
 200 g Fresh Spinach
 1 Handful cherry tomatoes, halved

1

Cook the pasta as per instructions on pack

2

While the pasta was cooking, I heated a little oil in a pan and added the garlic and cooked for about a minute before adding the tomatoes and cooking for another couple of minutes. I then chucked the chorizo in and cooked fora further 2-3 minutes. Finally I added the spinach and cooked for a couple of minutes until it had wilted.

3

Using a paddle with holes, I spooned the cooked pasta into the pan, making sure a few tablespoons of the pasta water was transferred too.

I mixed the pasta and poured in the red pesto. Warming it thorough and mixing before serving.

Ten minutes, less than £4.00, four well feed and happier children.
