Fabulous easy pasta

This is seriously the concoction of what I had in the fridge that day! It is so fast, fresh and fabulous that I go out of my way to ensure I have the ingredients to cook it on purpose now! My kids go back for seconds, and it freezes really well, so this simple dish is a winner in my house!


1 small onion, sliced

2 tsp garlic paste or 3 cloves of garlic crushed

4 sprigs box basil

A handful of parsley

350ml tomato puree or passata

6 pieces of grilled red and yellow capsicum (from the deli or jar or maybe from leftovers)

250g zucchini spaghetti – as in the fresh curly zucchini strips

Dash of olive oil

Salt and pepper



Heat a saucepan, splashing a dash of olive oil in. Add the onions and garlic and saute for a couple of minutes. Now add the herbs, passata and capsicum. Salt and pepper to your liking. Simmer for ten minutes. Steam the zucchini curls, then add to your sauce. Serve immediately and enjoy!
