Quick and Easy Basil Pasta Lunch

I work from home so I do have the luxury of making pretty much anything for lunch. The only thing is, I only have so many hours that the kids are at school so I am always looking for something quick and easy that allows me to work more while they are out of the house.

Here is my lunch from today:

Quick and Easy Basil Pasta Lunch

Prep Time 15 mins
Total Time 16 mins
Servings 1 serving


  • about 1 cup of pasta
  • 1/4 of frozen peas
  • 2 tablespoons of Wildtree Basil Pesto Grapeseed Oil
  • fresh Basil
  • pinch of pepper
  • Goat Cheese crumbles


  • Cook the pasta and toss in the peas during the last 3 mins. Drain.
  • Place in a bowl and toss with the Basil Pesto Grapeseed oil.
  • top with fresh basil, goat cheese and a touch of pepper.
