A couple days ago I had an adventure in the kitchen making a pasta dinner!  I love pastas that are mostly dry, with a touch of olive oil and amazing vegetables and spices…  So here’s a quick pasta recipe for you!

grilled vegetable pasta – serves 2, prep and cook time: 30 minutes


180g Whole Wheat pasta of choice
Water to cover pasta
1 T. Mixed herbs – Italian
Half large green and red bell peppers, sliced to 1/4″ pieces
Courgette (zucchini) sliced to 1/4″ pieces (and bite sized length)
3 T. Olive Oil
1 T. Garlic powder
Salt and pepper to taste
1/2 C. Cooked tuna or 1/2 tin of tuna or cooked salmon, optional
1/4 C. Grated cheddar cheese, optional

In a saucepan, bring pasta and mixed herbs to a boil and cook until al dente.

Meanwhile, put oil, garlic, salt and pepper into a medium mixing bowl and toss in vegetables until well covered.  Place the vegetables on your grill on foil evenly and not overlapping under a medium-high heat for roughly 15 minutes (keep an eye on these and turn foil to prevent over-browning if necessary).  Toss your tuna in the bowl previously used for tossing the vegetables and pop that in the microwave for about 30-60 seconds just prior to serving your dinner.  Serve hot and top with grated cheese for extra goodness!  Enjoy!
