    Boil the Penne
    Bring some water to a boil, roughly 1 litre per 100g of pasta. Once the water comes to boil, add some salt. Then start boiling the pasta. It should cook in roughly 8 minutes.
    Mise en Place
    Prepare the vegatables:
    We suggest cutting the red peppers into strips, and the mushrooms in quarters. However, cut them as you see fit. The olive are same, though we recommend cutting them halves at least.
    Just make sure you peel and mince the onion and garlic.
    Sauté your vegetables
    Put some oil in a pan and gently sauté the onion and then the garlic. Once they have cooked for almost a minute, then add in the vegetables and toss them for another 3 – 5 minutes. Add the pesto provide and then once the pasta is, add the pasta directly into the same pan.
    Toss the vegetables, pasta and pesto together. Once they are all nicely coated, check for seasoning and serve. IF you have some extra virgin olive oil lying around; drizzle some extra virgin olive oil on the pasta for added flavour.
