I’m so in love with this veg pasta dish that I’ve bought the ingredients to do it again this week.

  1. It’s ridiculously easy to make
  2. Super flipping cheap
  3. It’s totally meat free which i think Is a good thing now and then even for a meat lover like myself
  4. Super healthy cos of all the veg
  5. My kids absolutely loved it!!

I used Anabel Karmels recipe as a base, but here are my amendments.

1 tbsp olive oil

1 leek, finely chopped

1 garlic clove, crushed

1/2 red pepper

1 medium carrot, peeled & chopped

1 medium courgette, chopped

400 g tin chopped tomatoes

150 ml chicken stock

1 sachet tomato puree

1 tbsp tomato ketchup

1 tsp xylitol

I was running late the day I made it, so while I was frying the leeks I cooked the veg in the micro so I could speed up the process. Then I popped everything in the pot with the canned tomatoes and stock and let it boil while I did the pasta.

Then I blitzed the sauce added grated cheese on top and voila!!
