Inspired by TikTok: @cookingwithbello’s Two Ingredient Fresh Pasta + Pesto

The recipes app has hosted a wave of new recipes, inspired by recipes found on TikTok! Here is the first one from TikTokker Cooking with Bello!

The latest update hosted the largest addition of new recipes at once onto the app! Some of them arrived in a new area dedicated in the app, where they have been taken from TikTok. It featured a link to view the original creator and TikTok recipe, and they are all just simply delicious!

This first recipe, is a two recipe spinach pasta recipe, plus a delicously easy pesto sauce to go with it. It is such a simple, healthy and yummy dish that you can do if you are short on time or want to take a stab at making your own pasta, but don’t want to be thrown in the deep end!


150g of all purpose flour

130g fresh spinach

For Spinach Pesto

200g fresh spinach

30g walnuts

2x garlic cloves

50g parmigiana cheese


50ml extra virgin olive oil


In a food processor, add flour and spinach, mix for a minute or two until a dough forms.

If the dough is slightly sticky this is fine, do not add too much flour or the pasta will be too hard.

Remove dough and form a ball and then flatten, it should be 1 and a half inches thick.

In a pot, boil water with a pinch of salt, and hold the dough disk above to cut 1 and a half inch thick pieces letting them fall into the boiling water.

Cook for 5 mins or until they start to float.

For the pesto, add walnuts, garlic, parmigiana, spinach and the oil into a blender, and mix until smooth.

Serve pasta with the pesto and grate some more parmigiana on top to serve!
