Cheats Minestrone

The snow was a fleeting visit and it had melted by this morning…much to my disappointment! Last week Amanda at Little Foodies posted a natural cold remedy. As I think I’m beginning to come down with a cold I decided to give the recipe a go after work today. It was really soothing and far nicer than Lemsip. Next time I’m going to try and brave more ginger.

The microwave in work has now been fixed so I’m taking hot lunches again. I often eat this cheats minestrone for lunch as it is filling and made in 10 minutes. In reality this is nothing like true minestrone, but hey it tastes good!

Cheats Minestrone
Serves 4

1 litre of hot veg stock
1 tin of chopped tomatoes
100g of thin spaghetti broken into short pieces or macaroni
350g frozen veg
4 tbsp pesto

1) Bring the tomato and stock to the boil then add the pasta. Simmer for 4 minutes. Add veg and simmer for a further 2 minutes. Stir in pesto.



Say hello!
