Add this to the pile of random, fridge emptying, somewhat pretty, desperation meals. For todays candidate we have the easy-yet-satisfying pasta with pesto, beets that I needed to use up (and fast) and some cheddar for good measure.
How do you create this delight, you ask?
Boil water, add pasta. Drain pasta, mix in pesto. Chop beets. Grate cheese. Throw on top.
It’s a bit advanced and certainly not for the faint of heart, but with some advanced planning and an extra boost of self esteem I have no doubt you will be able to execute without a hitch.
