    I have just made a lovely simple pasta sauce......

    Carton of passata
    5 Laughing Cow Triangles (HexA)
    Mixed herbs
    Dried garlic
    Salt and pepper

    Put all ingredients into a microwavable container and stir well.

    Microwave for 5 - 6 minutes on full for 5 minutes taking out to stir every minute to make sure the cheese breaks up.

    Pour over pasta and top with fresh basil.

    So simple and it was really nice :D

    Does anyone else have ideas for syn free sauces, maybe using healthy extras as this one does, as I eat lots of pasta?

    1 Syn Carbonara (EE)

    This makes an awesome carbonara! Taken from Cook Yourself Thin




    [​IMG]
    • Serves 2
    • 1 syn per serving (EE) if using parmesan as a HEX A. (this is based on my C who says parma ham is free if you remove the fat) or 3 syns per serving if not using parmesan as HEX.
    Ingredients

    • 1 small onion, finely chopped
    • 1 teaspoon of extra-virgin olive oil
    • 45g Parma ham, fat removed and ripped into pieces
    • 150g linguine
    • 2 large free-range egg yolks
    • 20g freshly grated Parmesan
    • 1 tablespoon finely chopped chives
    • A small handful of roughly chopped flat-leaf parsley
    • 5–6 drops of Tabasco
    • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
    Method:

    1. Place the onion in a large, deep non-stick frying pan with 150ml water and bring to the boil. Lower the heat to medium, cover and cook for five minutes.

    2. Remove the lid, turn up the heat and cook for two to three minutes or until the water has evaporated.

    3. Add the olive oil and the Parma ham and cook for three to four minutes until browned, stirring frequently. Remove from heat and keep warm.

    4. Meanwhile, cook the linguine according to the packet instructions, adding 1/2 a teaspoon of salt to the cooking water.

    5. In a large bowl, mix the egg yolks, Parmesan, herbs and Tabasco.

    6. Drain the pasta when cooked, reserving three to four tablespoons of the cooking water.

    7. Mix together the pasta, egg yolks and Parmesan mixture with the reserved cooking liquid, the onion and Parma ham. Season well. Serve immediately with a green salad.

    Sal's tips

    1. If an onion doesn't need to be browned but just cooked, then use water instead of oil and simmer until tender.
    2. If you're pregnant (or feeding a baby, or if you're an elderly person), you might want to choose a different dish as there is a risk of salmonella with raw eggs.

    I like to roast veggies in the oven with fry light and some herbs, then I mix them with a tin of chopped tomatoes, heat through and serve with pasta, its really tasty and free on green
