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

    Ingredients


    • 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
    Method

    • 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!!
