organic foods, thanks to Waitrose and their Organic Month ideas.
They have recipes on their website if you need inspiration but last night I decided to do my usual cooking method of 'just cook it - only wimps need recipes' and it was surprisingly tasty.
I use pasta a lot so this was a fairly normal recipe for me.
Here is what I did
Waitrose Organic Fusilli
Waitrose Organic Passata
Onions (cut roughly into chunks)
Organic Sunflower oil
Organic Italian Herbs
Salt and Pepper
I put the pasta on to boil and lightly fried the bacon and onion in some sunflower oil. When the bacon and onion was nearly done, I added the sliced courgette and put the lid on the frying pan until the courgette was soft.
In a third sauce pan I added the passata and the sweetcorn and sliced olives. I added the fried items once they were done, and some of the grated cheese and some herbs, salt and pepper. I stirred and heated this sauce for five or ten minutes.
When the pasta was soft I strained it - added it to the pan with the sauce and stirred everything together. I spooned the resulting mix into a casserole dish, put the rest of the cheese on top and popped it into the oven for 20 minutes to brown...just leaving time for the washing up and a beer.
It would work just as well with tuna or quorn in place of bacon, or even just leave it out altogether.
