Pasta with pesto

This pasta is so easy to make that its not even worth putting it here but I am hoping oneday when my kids are grown enough to cook by themselves, this might be useful. Its an absolutely easy recipe for beginners and incredibly delicious too. I must admitt this was one of the best pasta that I ever had..
Pasta-500gms, I used fusili here.
Sundried tomato pesto- 2-4 tbsp
Basil Pesto- 2-4 tbsp
Vegetables-1 zucchini,5 mushrooms,1 bell pepper, 5cherry tomatoes
Onion-1, chopped fine
Garlic clove-2, choppd fine
Olive oil- 1 tbsp

1. In a wok, add the oilveoil. Whe hot add the onion and garlic and saute till soft.
2. Next add the chopped vegetables except chrry tomatoes and mix . Cover and cook on sim for about 10 min. The veggies should be cooked yet crunchy. Lastly add halved cherry tomatoes.
3. Add half of each pesto and mix and turn off the heat. You can make this in advance and keep and just before serving add cooked pasta to it.
4. Make pasta according to the directions on package. Drain and add it to the vegetable pesto mixture. Add the remaining half of each pesto and mix well. Add more pesto if required.
Tip: This recipe does not require any salt since pesto has salt and is full of flavour.
