Green Day Pasta bake with roasted vegetables, mustard and butter beans

A filling, tasty recipe that's great on green!!


  • Wholemeal penne
  • Tinned tomatoes
  • Tomato puree
  • Small onion - finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 tin butter beans (in water, no added sugar or salt)
  • wholegrain mustard 0.5 syn per teaspoon
  • mixed vegetables (to taste - I like red peppers, courgettes and aubergine)
  • Salt, pepper and herbs to taste
  • Reduced fat mozzarella 1xHE-B

  • Firstly, chop your veg for roasting, coat in frylight and pop in the oven for around an hour.
  • Finely chop your onion and garlic. Gently fry the onion in frylight til soft. Add the garlic and fry for another minute or so.
  • Add the beans, tinned tomatoes and tomato puree and stir well. Add 2-3 teaspoons of wholegrain mustard.
  • Season with salt and pepper and add the herbs you like to your taste (I use oregano)
  • Reduce heat and simmer for around 15 minutes, until the sauce gets nice and rich.
  • Whilst the sauce cooks, put the pasta on to cook.
  • When ready, add your roast veg to the sauce.
  • Optional: stir in 1 or half a HE-A allowance of laughing cow light/extra light triangles
  • Drain the pasta and add to the sauce, stirring well so it's all coated.
  • In a large ovenproof dish, pour in your pasta and sauce mixture. Top with light mozzarella, thinly sliced to cover the top.
  • Optional: sprinkle half a HE-A of parmesan cheese on top, with the mozzarella for extra cheesiness.
  • Bake in the oven at around 170degrees for 20 minutes, til the cheese is bubbling and browned.
And that's it! Serve with a fresh, green salad and enjoy :)

lol...no I probably wouldn't either. I tend not to with mustard. I can't see how it has syns really!
But technically it's not free so I've amended the recipe :)

I made masses tonight and the 3 teaspoons spread between all the portions probably amounts to less than quarter of a syn!!
