Almond-parsley pesto with sweet fried tomatoes

Almond-parsley pesto with sweet fried tomatoes

I was looking for something to eat this evening, but with no energy to go grocery shopping, the requirements for this recipe was twofold.

1.  Only use ingredients I already had lying around.

2.  Easy and fast to make.

The end result was this pasta dish with a nontraditional homemade pesto. It’s literally possible to make this dish in the time it takes to cook the pasta.. thats pretty fast i my book 🙂


  • Dried pasta, preferably linguini
  • Flat leaf parsley
  • Fresh thyme
  • Almonds
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Chili
  • Garlic
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Fresh lime juice
  • Cherry Tomatoes

Start cooking the Pasta..
In a small pan, fry the cherry tomatoes in olive oil and salt & pepper
Toast the almonds in another pan
Combine parsley, thyme, chili, garlic, almonds and parmesan in a pestle & mortar and pound… Add olive oil until you have a fine paste. Season with salt, pepper and lime juice

Drain the pasta and combine with the pesto. Serve with the fried tomatoes…
