' This pasta is super simple and quick to make and the perfect, veggie mid-week meal! It is full of healthy vegetables and goes perfectly with a big fresh, green salad. You can also adapt the recipe and add any other vegetables you have to hand, you can also add herbs off choice. It is comforting, nourishing and a delicious quick dinner'.
