It's an easy recipe for even the most inexperienced cooks and we guarantee mom will love it, not just because you put in the effort but because it will taste incredible too! Read on for the full recipe...

1/2 tsp. Salt
Black pepper
2 tsp Olive Oil
2 Cups Arugula
3/4 Cup Basil Pesto
1/2 900-g pkg  Linguine
3 Cups Cherry Tomatoes (halved)
1. Preheat oven to 400F.
2. Halve your cherry tomatoes and mix in olive oil and 1/4 tsp. salt. Season to taste with black pepper and place on a baking tray lined with parchment paper.
3. Place it into the centre of the oven and roast for about 20-25 minutes until tomatoes are soft and golden brown.

    I love it, nothing better than a fresh summer salad... it is time to get those beach bods in shape ladies!

  2. This looks like the perfect pasta dish! Pesto is one of my weaknesses- I love it on everything!
    I wish I was seeing my mom this weekend, but she lives several hours away and I just visited her last weekend. She loves when I call and sing 'Happy Mother's Day to You', a la Happy Birthday :)
