Lemon & thyme chicken penne

  I sometimes struggle to find a meal that I know the whole family will like- my daughters have complete opposite tastes!

Pesto, green bean and bacon rigatoni

It's easy to make your own pesto if you wish (recipe here but shop bought pesto tends to be relatively low syn if you don't have the time. This is a great quick throw-together dish, but tastes lovely.
