Sundried Tomato Pesto Pasta

Morning guys! Today I’m sharing one of my favourite go to mid week meals! Nothing beats pasta, especially pesto pasta! This ones a little more exciting as I’ve varied the nuts and I’ve added sundries tomatoes for more depth and flavour. Topped with more cheese and salty capers! A delicious, comforting and incredibly easy lunch! Great cold the next day too!
