It would not be that high as pasta and veg are both free.

Does it have olives in it? If not you would only need to syn the oil used as the rest is free on green or extra easy (woudl eb astronomical on red)

I would gauge how oily i felt it was or whether the sauce tasted dresh or out of a jar and then count 6 to 12 syns

Thank you so much, I didn't have olives but I will put it as 12 to be safe. 24 sound too scary! I hope I haven't done too much damage!

Thank you so much x

It's rare that things are cooked on site in chain restaurants.
Many I have worked in have pre packaged items made in a central kitchen that are sent out to the restaurants. Obviously things like steak are cooked at the time or order but things like pasta generally aren't.

Customers have got used to having their food 15- 20 mins after ordering (me included) so you have to wonder how a chef could make it from scratch in that time.
It's bad enough when people order v well done steak and expect it 5 mins later.

I know it's an old post, but just made sure that they use dried pasta not fresh otherwise you would have to count them as syns!!
