Another veggie recipe of mine to share!

Butter Bean, Mushroom, red bell Pepper & Green Chilli Spagetti in a Creamy tomatoe, garlic,oregano & fresh basil Sauce, served with Cheezey Garlic Pizza Bread (ok that bit was shop bought, its been a hella of day at work)

Really easy and healthy bean boost!

  • half red bell pepper
  • 6 or so thinly slice mushrooms
  • 1 nice scoop of creme freiche
  • teeny bit of grated mature chedder, just if the sauce needs thickening
  • few sprinklings of Vegan/veggie parmesan

Method:

  • Cook pasta
  • In meantime sauteĆ© red pepper & mushrooms
  • add tinned tomatoe, then the beans, chilli and garlic
  • stir and add basil ( 6 chopped leaves, add more if you like)
  • stir together, simmer whilst still attending to your cooking pasta
  • Now add creme freiche, stir all in, add black pepper & oregano
  • once pasta is cooked, drain and add to sauce
  • simmer until sauce reduces and as I said before add a small smaaall grating of mature cheddar if its handy… just to thicken and adds a nice taste, also add your parmesan.
