Recipe: Spaghetti with Shallot, Red Pepper and Red Pesto Sauce

We love cooking with shallots as they are a bit more child-friendly than onions, having less of that sharpness.  This simple 4 ingredient dish is perfect for an instant summer supper, it's so bright and colourful, but warming and satisfying enough for autumn too.


Serves: 4

Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 15 minutes

Ingredients

16 shallots, peeled and halved
2 large red peppers, cored, deseeded and finely sliced
1 tbsp olive oil
400g spaghetti
1 tub ready-made chilli and tomato red pesto or similar
handful of fresh torn basil, to serve

Method

1. Place the shallots and peppers int a frying pan with the olive oil, cook over a gentle heat until softened and cooked.

2. Cook the spaghetti according to pack directions, drain and stir in the pesto sauce, shallots and pepper, season to taste.

3. Serve in bowls sprinkled with the basil.
