- 2 cloves garlic
- 1 tsp olive oil
- 1 tsp oregano
- 1 tin tomatoes 400g
- 400ml water
- 1 tsp vegetable stock powder
- 1 large carrot grated
- 70g green beans or asparagus
- 1 small courgette
- 1 cup frozen peas
- 80g pasta (1 cup)
- 1 tin cannellini beans 260g drained weight
Finely dice the green beans and courgette.
Grate the garlic and put into a pan with olive oil and oregano. Add the grated carrots, tomatoes, water and vegetable stock powder and stir.
Add the green beans, courgette and pasta and cook on a medium heat for 6-7 minutes or until pasta is soft.
Just before taking off the heat, add in the peas and cannellini beans to warm up.
Optional: If you have fussy eaters that don’t like green foods, you can peel the courgette before cutting it, swap the green beans for cauliflower and swap the peas for corn on the cob!
