Ready Steady Lunch – The Budget Challenge

Ready Steady Lunch –  The Budget Challenge

Its week 2 of our Ready Steady Lunch Challenge and this week’s challenge was to create a meal for under £10, whether that was for one day (a pretty amazing lunch) or £10 to last a week.

I went with one day and created a pasta salad which is pictured below.

Ingredients :

  • Penne pasta (2 handfuls boiled)
  • Green pesto. I made this  
  • Mozzarella cheese, grated
  • Tabasco (a few drops)
  • salt and pepper for seasoning


  1. I boiled the pasta as per instructions on the packet.
  2. I made the pesto separately.
  3. I then added everything mentioned to the pasta once it was cooked.

The great thing is you can eat this hot or cold and so is very versatile.
