You will need
Quick cook pasta of your preference
2 fresh tomatoes
¼ each of green, red and yellow peppers
1 generous shake of italian herbs
2 gloves garlic
¼ inch fresh ginger
1 stock cube (I used chicken)
finely grated cheese for garnish
Put pasta on to boil, turn off heat and let it cook in its own steam.
Slice/chop all your ingredients and put in a pan with about an inch of water. Add the stock cube and herbs.
Bring to the boil, lower the heat and let simmer for five-ten minutes (until pasta is cooked)
Serve and sprinkle the cheese either on top or round the side as I did today.
Note (i) :
This cost me less than a pound to make as I had most of the ingredients already.
Tomatoes work out at about 10p each, I got a bag of three peppers for a pound, the onion was about 5p, and everything else is also only a few pence.
I get three meals out of a 500g bag of pasta for 29p.
Note (ii) :
Apologies for our serving dishes.
We own 4 plates (large side plates actually rather than dinner plates as the ones I had didn’t fit the washing up bowl or cupboard on board), two small white cereal bowls and two white bowls as above which I use practically all the time!
