Carrot and courgette pasta

£0.81     10 mins    Serves 1

Whilst pasta is such an easy meal sometimes it can become repetitive and slightly boring, this dish swaps the pasta for strips of carrots and courgette. I’ve seen so many courgette pasta dishes and this combines two vegetables to up your 5 a day count for a healthy meal.

All you need is

  • 2 carrots
  • ½ courgette
  • Pinch of black pepper
  • 2 tbsp passata
  • 1 tbsp parmesan
  • 1 small shallot
  • 1 tsp sunflower seeds

To make it just

  1. Get a pan of water boiling. Whilst this is boiling peel the carrots and courgette into long strips and place in the boiling water and leave for a 3 minutes.
  2. Chop the shallot into small cubes and place into the pot and leave for another minute stirring continuously.
  3. After a minute drain the contents and return to the hob, mix in the passata, sunflower seeds and parmesan stirring well.
  4. Once it’s all covered plate up, top with a pinch of cracked black pepper and enjoy.
