vegetables | quick fling pasta

Serves 2

I am almost embarrassed to include this because it's so simple! But it's a great dish to make when you've come home late or feel frazzled. It's also a great supper to make if good friends are visiting, which allows you time to enjoy their company rather than disappear into the kitchen never to be seen again.

Wheat free, dairy free, nut free, meat free version...




  1. Start cooking the pasta according to instructions.
  2. Heat the oil, add the tomatoes and cook for a few minutes.
  3. Add the sun dried paste, balsamic and wine/water and heat through.
  4. Drain the pasta, stir into tomato mixture.
  5. Serve with chives (and nuts if using) sprinkled on top and freshly milled black pepper.

Maybe serve with...

This is delicious served on its own, but you could add a side salad if you wished or make a wheat free garlic baguette.

For those able to eat goat's cheese or feta...

Make the sauce with tomatoes and tomato paste. Add a tbsp of chopped sundried or sun blush tomatoes. Then stir through feta cubes or crumbled goats cheese and black olives before serving.

For those able to eat dairy...

Sprinkle some grated cheese on the portions of those who can eat dairy just before serving. Alternatively, if you were all able to eat cheese, you could pour the pasta into an oven proof bowl, top with grated cheese and bake for 5-10 minutes.

For those who can eat wheat...

This is an excellent sauce if you want to eat a half or completely wholewheat pasta because the sundried tomato paste is strong enough to balance the rather more robust taste of the wholewheat! Once again, it is also lovely with some wheat garlic bread.

For those who can eat meat...

Again, you can sprinkle crispy bacon bits on top for meat eating portions, or stir through chopped up pieces of your favourite ham.

If you have leftover tomatoes, try the simple ratatouille, salsa, the fajita feast and the multipurpose salmon.
