Less than 5 minute vegetarian pasta recipe – pesto & pine nuts

pesto and pine nuts spaghetti

This is one of my favourite dishes and can be whipped up in less than 5 minutes.


Bring a large pot of water to boil and add a little olive oil then add your pasta.


While pasta is cooking make your pesto sauce:



2 cups of basil


1/3 cup of parmesan

1 tablespoon of olive oil

1 tablespoon of French dressing.



Add all ingredients into a large bowl and mix.  Once spaghetti is cooked, strain and add to the pesto sauce mixture.  Garnish with pine nuts.



Bon Appetit !

  1. Hi Sarhn,

    looks and sounds great. I’m definitely going to give it a try and that’s saying something from someone who is more meatasaurus than vegesaurus. All I have to do is scrounge up enough basil leaves from the yard to make some pesto, that’s if I haven’t killed all the plants.


  2. Thanks for a great recipe Just another case to show that being a vegetarian does not have to mean boring!
    I have bookmarked your site and will look for more great recipes.


  3. Interesting you add oil to the pasta water, I just add salt once the water is boiling and a little of infused oil to the pasta once its cooked, depending on what sauce i use with it, but it makes me hungry just looking at it.
