This was a super light healthy dinner which I snapped together in only 15 minutes. It’s a great dish if your short for time, or want something filling yet light.

You could alter you vegetables to whatever you have in your fridge, however this combo worked perfectly! The green pesto worked so well to give a light sauce covering to the pasta.

This dish can be eaten hot straight away, or also cold as leftovers for lunch. I used gluten free pasta, as it suits my stomach better, but you can use any shape or type of pasta. I think the tubes of penne work so well for this dish as they soak up the pesto in the insides.
