    Just been trying new recipes on my two children & whilst searching the internet I found this. I have adapted it slightly to make it SW friendly & the results are really quite nice. I thought it was good as it can be frozen which is a great time saver!!

    So here goes:

    (serves 2 adults and 1 or 2 children)
    • 1-2 carrots, chopped
    • 2 sticks celery, chopped
    • 1 crushed clove garlic
    • 2 tomatoes, chopped (or 1/2 can chopped tomatoes)
    • 1 tin of chickpeas, drained and rinsed
    • 1 vegetable stock cube
    • 150-200 grams Macaroni
    • Rosemary to taste
    • Crushed chilli flakes to taste
    Spray a pan with frylight & add the carrots, celery and garlic and gently fry for a couple of minutes until the celery is beginning to be translucent.

    Add chickpeas, rosemary, tomato, stock cube, chilli and a 1/2 can of water.

    Simmer covered until the chickpeas and carrots soften slightly (about 5 minutes), then uncover and let the liquid reduce slightly. Turn off the heat and let it rest.

    Meanwhile, cook the pasta to manufacturer's recomendation, then combine.

    I added some grated cheese for my children, you could do this using HEa.

    If freezing, freeze in portions before adding the cooked pasta.
