Pasta revisited

A few days ago, I did this post, and said I would make it again.

We were only away a couple of days and I had a large handful of green beans to pick and over twenty tomatoes had ripened!
So I made the dish again today, adding a thinly sliced carrot having found one looking lost and forlorn at the back of the fridge.
Cooking the beans for longer paid off, and the carrot added a bit of extra flavour.

Tuesday’s effort wasn’t a fluke and I really enjoyed this meal. It ticks a lot of SW boxes as it’s all veg (free), one veg stock cube which definitely works here (possibly half a syn), the permitted amount of cheese (30g) which when finely grated goes a long way and makes a lovely topping, and pasta is also a free food.
If you like your cheese, you could ‘syn’ the extra and not feel guilty.
Although I am not religiously following the SW bible at the moment, I am still keeping a food diary and being conscientious about what I eat, so plenty of fresh fruit and veg is high on my daily intake.
I’ve maintained the same weight now since February, and with that I am well pleased.
Sure I’d like it to be considerably less than it is, but one step at a time, even if it may seem a bit backwards!

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! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. 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.
