This is quick and easy. I made my own pesto, just add some sundried tomatoes to the following recipe:

If you don’t have the time, pesto from a jar is fine.

I tried to keep it as healthy as possible by using Weight Watchers crème fraiche and tesco healthy living bacon.

Serves 2


4 chopped smoked bacon medallions

2 tablespoons of red pesto (add more if you like a strong pesto flavour)

1 chopped pepper

20g of crème fraiche

100g of penne or pasta bows

1 small onion, finely chopped

1 clove of garlic, crushed

2 tablespoons of olive oil

Salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. Cook pasta according to packet instructions.
  2. Meanwhile, heat a pan and then pour in the olive oil. Once the olive oil is hot, fry the onions, peppers and bacon until almost browned. Add in the garlic and cook for a further 2 minutes.
  3. Stir in the pesto and heat through.
  4. Add in the pasta to the pesto and other ingredients. Stir in the crème fraiche and heat through.

Season to taste and serve with some fresh basil leaves.
