Easy Pasta Napolitana

Hmmmm pasta, my mouth waters at the thought. To be honest I am quite sure that a week does not go by without me eating it in some form. It is such an easy meal, that can vary and will always be delicious. Another plus, I am pretty sure that not a person out there does not like pasta, so how can you go wrong?
This is probably my favourite recipe, although I end up adding in different veggies depending on what I find in the fridge. It is quick and easy and doesn’t require any exotic ingredients (in my opinion) 🙂


Serves: 4 people
Preparation/Cooking time: 30 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp rosemary
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 1/4 tsp ground chilli (or more if you like it spicy)
  • 1 broccoli head, cut into small pieces
  • 300g mushroom, sliced
  • 6 ripe tomatoes (or used canned tomato if you prefer)
  • 1/2 cup tomato paste
  •  300g pasta

Instructions:

  1. Heat a large sauce pan with olive oil. Put on the water for the pasta, adding the pasta once boiled.
  2. Add the onions to the sauce pan and sauté over medium heat until tender and soft. Add the garlic, herbs and chilli, and cook for a further minute.
  3. Add the broccoli with a small layer of boiling water and cook until tender over medium to high heat. The water should have evaporated by this point (about 5 minutes). If you prefer to cook the broccoli separate that is also possible and you can add it together with the tomatoes later.
  4. Add the mushrooms and cook until slightly browned, then add the tomatoes and cook further for another 5 minutes.
  5. Finally add the tomato paste and combine.
  6. Distribute the pasta across four bowls and spoon the sauce over each, top with grated cheese (this can be left out if vegan).

I hope you enjoy this dinner ❤
