HEALTHY PASTA IN 15 MINUTES

easy healthy pasta recipe

A few day ago a good friend of mine asked me if I could share a easy healthy pasta recipe with her and maybe you would like me to do the same for you! You can also find a lot of other healthy recipes on Healthy Wanderlust, so make sure to check them out. (Most of them are also very easy to prepare - just the way you and I like it right?). 

Oh and by the way, I quickly wanted to remind you that pasta doesn't necessary have to be unhealthy like a lot of people seem to think. As long as you use whole grain pasta and you make your own healthy pasta sauce you can definitely enjoy a good warm bowl of pasta every once in a while. 

INGREDIENTS: (for 2 persons)

  • 150 / 200 grams of whole grain pasta 
  • vegetarian meatbals
  • 1 zucchini 
  • 2 hands of spinach 
  • 10 grams feta cheese
  • 10 grams pine nuts (optional)
  • 10 black olives 
  • 1 red onion
  • 2 tomatoes 
  • 2 cloves of garlic 
  • 2 tbsp oregano 
  • 2 large tbsp of tomato pasta 
  • salt/pepper

METHOD: 

  1. Cook the pasta for about 10 minutes.
  2. Cut the tomatoes, zucchini and red onion into small pieces. 
  3. Poor a few drops of olive oil into a pan and add the pressed gloves of garlic and pieces of onion. Bake for 4 minutes. 
  4. Add the zucchini and do the same with the pieces of tomatoes, spinach, olives and tomato paste after 5 minutes. 
  5. Stir well before you add the oregano, pinch of salt and grinded pepper. Bake for another 5 minutes on medium heat. 
  6. Prepare the vegetarian meatballs in another pan at the same time. 
  7. Rinse the cooked pasta and add the sauce. 
  8. Scoop the pasta into bowls and crumble some feta on top of it. 
  9. Optional: add some roasted pine nuts for a little crunch! 
  10. Serve with the warm vegetarian meatballs. 
  11. ENJOY!
