I quite often stir a spoonful of harissa into couscous or rice to give it some flavour so why not pasta? It’s also quite normal to just stir a spoonful of pesto into a bowl of pasta so why not harissa? Exactly.
I had been planning to make this pasta all month long. I made it last month but a really simple version with just harissa and pasta. It was one of those days when I didn’t feel like cooking but just wanted to make something quick, easy and tasty. I was surprised by how much liked it.
This time I made it I wasn’t feeling quite so lazy as before and I also wanted to make the dish a little more interesting and so added some roasted peppers and onions as well as a few pine nuts.
