Tomato and pepper pasta

You will need
Quick cook pasta of your preference

2 fresh tomatoes
¼ each of green, red and yellow peppers
1 onion
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!

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. Looks tasty – plus, it looks nice and bright, like something to eat in summer (I’m pretending it’s summer, even though it’s still April).
