Emma's Piss Easy Pasta

  • Wholewheat Pasta
  • 3 Large Tomatoes
  • 1 Red Pepper
  • 2 Garlic Cloves
  • Cooked Ham (You Can Use Bacon)
  • Basil
  • Parmesan Cheese

If like me you can sometimes be a lazy lout when you come home from work and just want something quick and tasty to eat, then look no further than this piss-easy pasta!

Not only can this be whipped up from start to finish in 10 minutes, it’s also relatively healthy. I used some leftover cooked ham in this but you could easily grill up a few rashers and use them instead.

(Serves 2)


Step 1

Throw the pasta in a pot of boiling salted water, adding a little oil to the water means it won't stick together. About 1 cup of dried pasta is enough per person.

Step 2

Finely chop your garlic, tomatoes and peppers.

Step 3

Throw all the chopped veggies into a frying pan on a medium-high heat with a little oil and stir around for around 5 minutes until totally softened. If the pan starts to dry up just add in little cooking water from the pasta.

Step 4

Stir in your pasta and cooked ham, season generously with salt and pepper. You can use a little more of the cooking water from the pasta (or some olive oil) to loosen it out if you need to.

Step 5

Serve with a good lash of grated Parmesan cheese and some chopped or torn basil leaves.
