Hi and welcome to our Vegetarian Kitchen. Once again, with economy in mind, a cheap and cheerful pasta dish. Real comfort food and healthy too. If you cannot get Rocket use spinach leaves or lettuce.
500g Penne Pasta (dried)
400g Tin Chopped Tomatoes
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 cloves garlic, chopped or minced
1 small green chilli chopped (for a milder flavour remove seeds)
60g Fresh Rocket or Spinach leaves
Grated cheese (Parmesan or strong Cheddar)
Salt to taste
First make the sauce.
Heat oil in a saucepan. Add garlic and chilli, fry gently for half a minute. Add tin chopped tomatoes and bring to boil, simmer a few minutes. Add rocket, stir through until wilted. Season to taste.
Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil, add penne pasta and boil for about 10 minutes or until al dente. Do not allow to stick. Drain immediately.
Add the sauce to the saucepan of pasta and stir well.
Serve in bowls with grated cheese.
