Recipe:


Serves: 4


Preparation time: 15 minutes

Cooking time: 15 minutes

Total time: 30 minutes

 

Ingredients:


- 400g fusilli pasta

- 2 tablespoons olive oil

- 200g mushrooms, sliced

- 200g cherry tomatoes, halved

- 150g vegan pesto (store-bought or homemade)

- Salt and pepper, to taste

- Fresh basil leaves, for garnish



 

Method:


1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook the fusilli pasta according to the package instructions until al dente. Drain and set aside.


2. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the sliced mushrooms and sauté for about 5 minutes, until they have softened and released their moisture.


3. Add the cherry tomatoes to the skillet and continue to cook for another 3-4 minutes, until they start to soften.


4. Stir in the vegan pesto and cooked fusilli pasta, tossing until everything is evenly coated. Season with salt and pepper to taste.



To serve:

Divide the pasta among four serving bowls and garnish with fresh basil leaves. Serve immediately.


 

Additional Tips:


For a touch of creaminess, you can add a splash of vegan cream or unsweetened almond milk to the skillet when adding the pesto.


Feel free to add your favourite veggies, like spinach or roasted red peppers, for extra colour and flavour.
