I love to turn to other bloggers for inspiration and when I was looking for a quick and healthy family meal, Helen from The Crazy Kitchen came up trumps when she presented me with the recipe for her Sausage Pesto Pasta.
It’s quick, tasty and full of good stuff. My two like it so much that I’ve had to make it quite a lot over the past couple of months, but every time I have taken ingredients away and replaced them with new ones – not because I didn’t like the original, but because I like change or ehm hadn’t been shopping for everything on the ingredients list.
Last night, I told Helen that we had had ‘her pasta’ again (that’s what we call it here ‘Helen’s pasta’) and she laughed telling me that I had a) probably made it more times than herself and b) it was a completely different recipe now, so I thought I might as well share it with you all. There can’t ever be too many quick and easy recipes for family meals out there, right?
