Coriander, Wasabi, Macadamia Farfalloni Pasta with Cherry Tomatoes

Look at this pretty meal guys!  Can you stand it?

This is the simplest meal ever ! and it is under 30 minutes !!! It seriously is a matter of pasta and pesto, tossed together….meal done.  Eat hot or cold.  I had some of this fancy bow tie (or butterfly) pasta, which I could just not resist in my cupboard. (Probably the last of my gluten pasta, but that is fine.) If you are Gluten Free, use a Gluten Free Pasta, even if you cannot get the fancy bow tie (or butterfly) one, any pasta will do. It all is great !!!

Now, for the people who aren’t keen on the hot stuff….. brace yourself…this is not a hot meal unless you get over enthusiastic with the wasabi, and then your nasal passages will be going crazy with this cold, airy feeling (actually weird feeling). Your eyes may start to water and your sinus’s will be utterly cleared.  So, note to yourself:  Keep it simple and enjoy the slight flavour….

1/3 cup plus 1 Tablespoon (approximately 100 milliliters) chopped onion
