Description

A quick and easy 15-minute Mediterranean Vegetable Pasta recipe with ingredients you’ll most likely have in your store cupboard or pantry. This dish makes use of frozen Mediterranean veggies for ultimate convenience and bags of nutrition. It’s simply summer in a bowl.

Ingredients

  • 1-½ cup Whole Wheat Pasta
  • 1 teaspoon Sea Salt, Divided
  • 1 Tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 3 cups Frozen Mediterranean Vegetables
  • 2 teaspoons Chopped Garlic (Fresh Or Frozen)
  • 2 teaspoons Chopped Red Chili (Chilli), Fresh Or Frozen
  • ¾ cups Cherry Tomatoes
  • 1 Tablespoon Tomato Paste (Purée)
  • ¾ cups Cheddar Cheese
  • ½ teaspoons Freshly Ground Black Pepper

Preparation

Boil the kettle for the pasta, prepare your ingredients and get your equipment ready. Cook the pasta in boiling water, with ½ tsp salt as per the packet instructions. You’ll want to cook it until al dente which, depending on the shape, is usually about 8-12 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large pan and then add the Mediterranean vegetables, garlic and chili (chilli). Cook, frequently stirring for 5 minutes. Have you been transported to the Mediterranean yet?

Add fresh cherry tomatoes and cook for a further 3 minutes. This adds another layer of freshness and out of this world flavour.

Now, add the tomato purée to the pan with the cheese, ¼ cup of starchy water that the pasta is cooking in, the remaining salt and the pepper. Stir, and after about a minute the cheese will have melted, and the sauce will have thickened.

Once cooked, drain the pasta and pour into the Mediterranean vegetable sauce. Stir to coat the pasta with the sauce and serve immediately. Enjoy!
