Breadcrumb Pesto Spaghetti
Breadcrumb Pesto Spaghetti
Here's a good way to use up stale bread.

1/4 cup pine nuts
2/3 cup olive oil
2 1/2 cups of stale wholemeal breadcrumbs (or white if that's what you've got)
2 cloves of garlic, crushed
2 teaspoon of bottled minced chilli
Dried spaghetti for 4
190g jar of basil pesto
Shredded Parmesan cheese

1. Brown pine nuts in a dry frying pan. Set aside.
2. Heat half the oil in the frying pan, add crumbs, garlic & chilli. Cook, stirring, until the crumbs are brown and crispy. Remove from pan.
3. Cook spaghetti in boiling salted water, drain.
4. While the pasta is cooking, heat remaining oil in the pan, add pesto and stir to combine. Careful, as this can spit a bit.
5. Toss spaghetti with pesto, pine nuts and crumb mixture.

Sprinkle with Parmesan. Make it pretty by scattering fresh basil over the top. I didn't have any!
