Psstt….don’t even tell them it’s any different!!

Ingredients:

  • 800g tinned tomatoes, chopped
  • 4-5 mushrooms
  • 1C broccoli florets
  • 1/2 red capsicum
  • 1 can Chickpeas, drained (swap for kidney beans if you prefer)
  • 1/2C red wine (or water if prefer)
  • 2Tbsp sundried tomatoes in oil, sliced
  • 1-2tsp garlic, chopped
  • 2Tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2Tbsp finely chopped herbs (basil or parsley)
  • 1 bay leaf
  • Serve with Fetticine of choice (GF or wholemeal)  or zoonoodles (zucchini noodles)!

Method:

  1. In large saucepan over medium heat add all ingredients except the pasta. Bring to the boil, then simmer for 30-40mins (or add it all to a slow cooker for the day or night).
  2. Remove from heat & discard the bay leaf. Use a stick blender to whizz up the sauce till the texture suits your family.
  3. Taste & season to families taste. Serve with pasta of choice…& maybe some grated cheese if you like?!

Serves x2 adults & 2-3 kids

Tip: You can really use any veggies you like – get creative! Also, this is a great recipe to make up the sauce & then freeze in portions to suit your family….just serve with fresh pasta.
