Warm Pesto Pasta with Haloumi

Serves 4

Last night I made a quick and easy pasta using ingredients that I had on hand in the fridge and some Thermomix made basil pesto which I had leftover from the Roasted Tomato Soup which I posted a couple of days ago. Sometimes the best meals come from pure improvisation. This was really tasty, and I'll definitely make it again. The haloumi is optional, but if you've got it or love it, use it without question. 

What's in it?

200g dried penne pasta
60g sundried tomatoes, cut into strips, not packed in oil
100g fresh rocket
4tbs basil pesto (get recipe here)
2tbs light sour cream
180g halomi, cut into thin slices (optional)

How do I make it?

1. Bring a large pot of salted water to the boil and cook pasta until al dente, or to your liking. 

2. Meanwhile, spray a frypan with olive oil and cook halomi on each side for about 1 minute or until golden and mix together pesto and sour cream in a small bowl.  

3. When pasta is cooked, drain well and put back into the warm pot. Add pesto and sour cream mixture, sundried tomatoes and rocket and mix together until combined. Serve topped with haloumi slices. 

10 ProPoints per serve (with haloumi) or 8 ProPoints per serve (without haloumi).
