Red Pepper Pesto Pasta

Super simple to make and a total crowd pleaser, well worth trying!


Serves 4


  • 10 g of garlic about 1-2 cloves of garlic, depending on how much you like garlic!
  • 100 g almonds
  • 150 ml olive oil use 75ml water:75ml olive oil for a lower fat version
  • 30 g fresh basil leaves removed from stalk
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 15 ml balsamic vinegar
  • 10 ml lemon juice
  • 100 g roasted red peppers from jar – drained and rinsed


  • Peel your garlic, remove any tough stalks from the basil
  • Put all ingredients in the food processor/blender and blend. If you want it chunky pulse it until it reaches your desired consistency. If you want it super smooth blend for longer until its becomes creamy and smooth!
  • Taste and season to see if it needs more salt or lemon juice
  • Serve with 500g of cooked pasta of choice – generally we serve 2 parts pasta to 1 part pesto for the perfect balance!
  • Enjoy!
