Well, as you could guess, the easy fast thing to usually make is pasta! If you have more than 15 minutes to pull dinner together, then I suggest taking the route of making homemade, fresh whole wheat pasta!!! But, as you can imagine, time has not been on my side for quite a while now, so I had to go for the already made pasta. tisk, tisk, I know, I know! Scold me later, why dontcha?
Moving on from my laziness...
The real star of this dish is the sauce! I was able to throw it together with what I already had in my pantry/refrigerator. This roasted red pepper-tomato pesto sauce is absolutely delicious and light! Enjoy!

1. Cook your pasta!
2. While your pasta is cooking, combine the olive oil, pepper, and tomatoes in a food processor and grind them until well combined!

Eat it and enjoy!
