Spinach, cherry tomato and pesto spaghetti  Photographer: Adrianna Anastasiades


Prep time: 10 minutes       Cooking time: 15 minutes      Serves 4


1 jar of dairy free pesto

1 packet of  cherry tomatoes

1 packet of spinach

1 packet of spaghetti (can be gluten free if you prefer that option)

Olive oil to drizzle


Step 1. Preheat oven 200 degrees. Wash the cherry tomatoes and  cut them in half. Place them in an ovenproof dish and drizzle olive oil on top. Let the cherry tomatoes cook in the oven for 10 minutes.

Step 2. Cook the pasta according to the instructions on the packet. When the cherry tomatoes are cooked, take them out of the oven and let them cool to one side. Once the spaghetti is ready, drain it and place it back in the pot straight away. Wash the spinach and then mix it with the spaghetti so it can wilt whilst it’s still hot. Add the cherry tomatoes into the pot along with the pesto and mix well. Enjoy.

Tip: I added grated Parmesan cheese on top as it really brings out the flavour. For those who are lactose intolerant, use dairy free grated cheese.
