Veggie Power Pasta

Ingredients

  • 200g cherry tomatoes
  • 1 Romanesco red pepper
  • 100g Onken Natural set yoghurt
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 large carrot
  • Olive oil for cooking
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • Large handful fresh basil leaves
  • 170g bowtie pasta
  • 2 large handfuls baby spinach
  • 200g chestnut button mushrooms

Method

  • Start off by chopping the pepper and carrot into bitesize chunks.
  • Heat a little olive oil in a pan and crush in the garlic cloves. Sauté these over low-medium heat until fragrant.
  • Add in the tomatoes, pepper and carrot and bring the heat to medium. Cook until the veggies have all softened.
  • In a blender, combine Onken yogurt, veggies, seasoning and basil leaves together and blend until smooth and creamy.
  • Meanwhile, cook the pasta according to the instructions, then drain, reserving a little of the pasta water.
  • Stir the sauce through the pasta (there will probably be some leftover) then mix through the spinach and allow this to wilt. Leave this in the pan to stay warm.
  • Slice the mushrooms into halves and add these to a hot frying pan with a little olive oil, salt and pepper and cook until golden and crispy!
  • Serve the pasta topped with the mushrooms and a good seasoning of black pepper.
