I Can't Be Asked - 6 Minute - Pasta

So, it's January, there are Exams looming, deadlines approaching, and Rent due. In this frame of mind cooking a meal from scratch is probably the last thing on your mind, but here's where I come in to brighten your day!

In just 6 minutes you can wrap your freezing hands around a bowl of warm, cheesy, pesto-covered pasta with nutritious wilted spinach and juicy chunks of pepper. How does that sound? :D

While the pasta was on a high boil, I heated up a teaspoon of oil in a frying pan and chopped up a small handful of red and yellow pepper. Once chopped I put it in the frying pan, reduced the heat to a medium flame and put a lid ontop to keep in any steam. 

While both pots were bubbling I opened a bag of spinach, took out my bowl, cheddar and a grater and waited.

Once the pasta was cooked I drained it and put it back on a low heat, added three big spoonfuls of pesto and mixed it in. Meanwhile I grabbed a large handful of spinach and let it wilt over the peppers, under a lid on a fairly high heat so that they'd get on with it.

Less than two minutes later, I plated it all up and put everything else in the basin to wash up later.

Ta Da! Delicious, Quick, Vegetarian food suitable for stressed out students!
