At home: Hey Pesto


Home at 9pm, and couldn't bear the prospect of cooking from scratch, so I bashed together these storecupboard/windowsill goodies, and had, surprisingly, a vaguely acceptable plate of pasta. Try it when you're famished and the fridge is woefully empty:

• 4 anchovies in oil
• extra virgin olive oil
• fresh parsley or basil
• clove of garlic
• 1 or 2 deseeded chillies
• 1/2 tbsp toasted pine nuts
• 1 tbsp grated Parmesan

Maybe a little lemon zest would be good, too (if I'd had any!). And walnuts make a refreshing change to pine nuts.
