Pesto and Sundried Tomato Vegetable Pasta

This was a fridge clearing meal that went surprisingly well. So I thought I’d share as you might have some lonely leftover veggies hanging about on your fridge shelves too. Feel free to swap the veg for any greens (green beans, courgette, kale etc) or tomatoes. Enjoy x
