Fasta pasta

Fasta pasta


  • Garlic
  • Onioin
  • Green beans
  • Stock (any is ok – for this recipe i used vegetable)
  • Chopped tomatoes
  • Pasta Tortillini
  • Cheese (ideally parmesan – but whatever’s available; i used cheddar cheese for this)
  • Oregano/basil

Heat your pan, add garlic and fry for about a minute.  Drop your heat a bit and add onion, gently fry until slightly brown.  Throw the green beans in and continue to cook for another minute. (Green beans can be replaced with any other vegetable that has a crunchy texture, such as shredded carrot or pepper.)  Pour in the stock and follow with the tin of chopped tomatoes.  (It can be a bit of a nuisance carrying tins, so you could always replace the tin of chopped tomatoes with a carton of passata… i haven’t actually tried this, but i’m sure it’d be lovely…one would hope!) Add the pasta and simmer for three to four minutes or as directed on the packet of pasta.  Adding in some cheese at the end will help thicken it up a bit. To finish, add basil or oregano or whatever herb or spice is at hand!
