¼ box of passata
1 tsp :
A handful of pasta
A handful of kale
A handful of carrot
½ tsp chilli flakes

The results are in
Like most pasta dishes this one is incredibly desirable for students as it’ so easy and quick, which is of course what we look for in our meals.
This meal was full of flavour which was fantastic, however, there wasn’t much sauce which meant after a while the dish got incredibly dry. This is easily fixable by simply adding more passata.
Overall, this dish met all needs. It was amazingly filling as well as healthy, the beans were a great substitute for meat as well the mixer of seasonings created a flavourful dish.
