    Ingredients
    Serves: 2 

    • 2 teaspoons salt
    • 6 balls tagliatelle
    • oil
    • 1 garlic clove, crushed
    • fresh basil leaves
    • 1 small tub single cream
    • 3 tablespoons basil pesto
    • 2 teaspoons ground black pepper, or to taste

    Method
    Prep:5min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:20min 

    1. Bring a saucepan of water to the boil with salt, put in tagliatelle pasta.
    2. Get a pan, heat the pan up on medium-low heat, add a tiny bit of oil, put in crushed garlic and basil leaves. After 2 minutes, add cream. Once it starts sort of boiling and changing colour, add pesto and stir well. Drain tagliatelle and put the tagliatelle in the sauce and stir again. Season with pepper.

    Tip

    Don't overcook the cream. You can see the cream changing colour and start to thicken and this is when it's ready for you to add the pasta and stir it in.
