Pesto, bacon and tomato pasta 

Or green dinosaur and meat pasta as we call it.

Today Bert discovered he could run out of the back door and climb back in through the living room window. He declared himself ‘amazing superhero window boy’, and every time (there were about 50 times) he attempted to climb in, I was instructed to say, ‘there’s no way Bert could climb in the window. He’s just a boy! Unless…’

We were all assigned personas – I’m bookandtea-man (realistically my best fit superhero), Tony campervan-man (ditto) and Ray lead-dog (he’s less thrilled).

This is campervanman’s favourite crime fighting pasta dish.

Serves 3-4

2 little packets of diced pancetta or diced bacon, fried in a little olive oil

1/2 punnet cherry tomatoes, halved

1/2 bag of pine nuts, dry toasted in a hot pan

Cooked pasta

3 dessert spoons pesto

Parmesan cheese, grated

Combine the cooked pasta, pesto, pine nuts, tomatoes and bacon, and top with cheese at the table.
