My children love pasta and this is a great way to add in veg to help towards their 5 a day. It uses store cupboard ingredients that can be varied depending on what veg the family like and what is to hand. Can be adapted to be veggie without the bacon.

Cook pasta according to packet instructions - approx 12 mins

In a large frying pan, heat the olive oil. Add chopped onions and cook for 5 mins until soft

Meanwhile, microwave green beans for 2 mins

Add chopped bacon to onions, cook until bacon is browned

Chop red pepper into either strips or small dice. add to bacon and onion mix

Add passata to bacon/onion/ red pepper mix. bring to boil then simmer

add chilli flakes to suit palate. Season with pinch each of salt and pepper

Add sliced mushrooms to passata/veg mix and cook for 5 mins

Add green beans to passata / veg mix

Drain pasta and add passata / veg mix sauce to it. Keep a little of pasta water to loosen mixture

Serve with grated parmesan cheese

Can omit bacon for veggie option Can change veg to suit taste /seasons e.g. brocolli / asparagus / sweetcorn / green, yellow or orange peppers / courgettes etc
