Jamie Oliver's sundried tomatoes & pesto

I drove to Sainsbury's 6 hours before our flight back to Malaysia just to stock up on all the baking and cooking ingredients which I'll never be able to find here in Bolehland.

I bought bottle[s] of sun dried tomatoes in olive oil and pesto sauce.

So here I am back in Malaysia and photos of pastas sis and I cook with Jamie's bottled kitchen helpers.

Stir fry some garlic chunks with extra virgin olive oil together with some dried chillies (minced). Pour in a can of tuna chuck, add salt, add in thymes, parsley, black pepper and salt to taste. Lastly, add in a generous amount of sun dried tomatoes.

Cook some pasta of your choice. As for me, I boiled angel hair for this recipe because I love the finer texture of these pasta as compared to spaghetti. As soon as the pasta's ready, drain the water and pour it directly into the prepared tuna mix. Stir well.

(Those red long pieces on my pasta are not dried chillies, it's sun dried tomatoes)

Today sis and I decided to cook macaroni (with cherry tomatoes, sun dried tomatoes, chicken cubes [skin removed], herbs, cajun spice, extra virgin olive oil, bay leaf and mix herbs)

Spray a little olive oil in a nonstick pan, add in garlic, 2 pieces of bay leaf and chicken cubes[marinate with a little salt, pepper and herbs]. Next, add in the cherry tomatoes, Cajun spice and herbs [thymes, parsley]. Lastly, add in about a tablespoon of Pesto and sun dried tomatoes. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Add in cooked pasta of your choice and mix well. Here you go, another simple yet nutritious meal in less than 15 minutes.
