Hi guys, I’ve recently been working on healthy, nutritious meals which are also fillings and the first one is a pasta salad, I know the ingredients are quite random but I promise it tastes delicious 😋
75g wholemeal pasta
1 small sweet potato peeled and cut into cubes
5 Brussels sprouts cut in half
1 small carrot grated
1 spring onion sliced
1/2 yellow pepper sliced
3 tbsp oil
20g ricotta cheese
1. Prepare the vegetables first then put on a pan of water for the pasta. In a bowl mix the sprouts, potato and yellow peppers with 3 tbsp of oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Next, place on a tray and bake in the oven for 20 minutes until soft.
2. Once the pan starts to boil, cook the pasta then drain off the liquid and place in a bowl, mix in the carrot and spring onion.
3. Take the tray from the oven and add to the pasta mixture, gently stirring.
4. Lastly sprinkle on the ricotta cheese and enjoy!!
I know there isn’t any sauce with this but it honestly tastes great alone, the sweet potato and brussel sprouts really complement each other and overall the dish is a WINNER!! I love how basic but tasty this meal is and the ingredients are minimal. It’s easy to prepare and you can just double the ingredients if you are cooking for more people.
Let me know if you try this recipe ☺
