ღ Cooking Time ღ Pesto Pasta & Mashed Potatoes

I have never cook pesto pasta before so I don't really know the correct method. BUT! I have youtube as my Sensei! XD 

Here's how I do it, the lazy way! XD

Pesto Pasta:
  1. Cook spaghetti and rinse away the water.
  2. Cook the pesto sauce (chopped garlic, green pepper, ready mix tesco pesto sauce, mashed potato, 2 slices of cheese, black pepper, salt, vinegar, a little sugar).
  3. Rinse the pasta, then add olive oil to prevent it from sticking.
  4. When the sauce is ready, put the pasta onto the sauce in the pan to stir+fry a bit. 
  5. Serve on raw lettuce. Done!
I actually mixed the ingredients from a few videos and also cheated by using ready made pesto sauce :P


Bon apetite~! I already ate halfway before I remember to take any pic :X

Oh yea, forgot to put my mashed potato recipe. Here it is:

Mashed Potatoes:
  1. Peel potatoes (lots of them!)
  2. Cut into small size, about 1.5cm X 2cm X 2cm (don't need to be exact)
  3. Boil them for 15-20 mins~ until they are all very very soft!
  4. Rinse the water, then smashed them properly. Use beater if you have one. I don't, so I wasted my 20 mins smashing it with a fork.
  5. Put them back into the pot, add a bit of the rinsed water to cook it smoother. 
  6. Add butter, about 3 big spoons (depends on how many potatoes you have, I had about 700g potatoes)
  7. Add Sour Cream. I bought it for £1 at Saintsbury's. You can use normal cream if you don't like sour stuffs. Cook with low to medium flame
  8. Add 2 slices of cheddar cheese. Parmesan cheese would do too.
  9. Add salt.
  10. Add chicken/vegetable stock, 1/4 cube would do. Keep stirring and adding water to make sure it's smooth. Done!!!  

I cooked a lot of mashed potatoes and pesto pasta to keep in the fridge. I can eat it anytime or just bring as bento to sch~ The mashed potatoes can be eaten cold, I'm having it as dessert sometimes, just like any ice-cream! 

Have fun Cooking~! (-^∀°-)
