Pesto-Pasta

You know the feeling when you buy some pesto, open in it and then you have to use it within a few days but you can't? So in that case I thought I could incorporate it into my lunch. This also works if you have a pesto-spice. I used red pesto and combined it with tomatoes and eventually some cream. Of course you can leave the cream out or swap it with creme fraiche, but it enhances the flavour in such a tasty way that I am just to hooked on it. This recipe is super quick and tasty, so give it a try! Enjoy!
