LUNCH/SUPPER under 15 minutes
Hi and welcome to our Vegetarian Kitchen and this week we are continuing
with lunch/supper dishes in under 15 mins. We all have days when we are too
busy to spend hours in the kitchen or maybe want a quick meal before we go out
in the evening. Fresh pasta is ideal on these occasions with a cooking time of
only 3 to 5 minutes.Most supermarkets
will sell fresh pasta in their chilled foods compartments and once home store
it in the fridge.It will last 2 or 3
weeks if unopened.Here are our
suggestions for a quick meal.
500g pack of fresh pasta(try penne
or taglietelle) (serves 4 to 6 people)
Grated Cheese (Parmesan or Mature Cheddar).Do not use Mozarella as it will become elastic.
Fresh cooked Peas (1 cup)
Fresh cooked Broad Beans (1 mug)
Olive Oil to drizzle over
Bring a large saucepan of boiling water to the boil, add pasta and cook for
3 to 5 mins. Drain in a colander.Return
pasta to the saucepan.Add one or two of
the above ingredients.egFresh basil leaves and cherry tomatoes:ora
tablespoon of pesto with broad beans or peas.
Drizzle olive oil over pasta then serve immediately and add grated cheese.
