Recipe Hack: Tomato Pesto Pasta

Thanks to Amanda Brownhill for sending this in to the Camps Australia Wide Community Cookbook! It is featured in the Camp Recipe Hacks and we tried it out on the last night of our Outback QLD road trip this year. We had stopped into a caravan park at Gayndah, and welcomed a simple meal that used up all our scraps. Very easy, versatile and yummy!

Fry bacon and onion until crispy. Add 1/4 jar or 3 tablespoons of pesto. Fry off. You can add mushrooms, herbs and pepper at this stage if you want to. Add long life cream and heat through with some parmesan cheese. Add to cooked pasta. Switching up from fettuccini to tortellini and more. Yummy. As my 10 year old tells everyone.. it’s our go to meal!
