It’s just before Christmas. Everyone’s busy, rushing, shops are crowded, queues everywhere.
When I have to make a quick dinner, I always turn to pasta.
Spelt Pasta with Broccoli and Sun Dried Tomatoes:
wholemeal spelt spaghetti
3 tbsp olive oil
2 cloves garlic
1/4 chili flakes
1/2 cup chopped roughly sun dried tomatoes
1 tsp lemon zest
1/2 cup pine nuts
- Boil lightly salted water for pasta.
- Heat olive oil in a heavy pan. Add chopped garlic and chili flakes. When the garlic softens add broccoli florets. Cover and cook for 10 min on a low heat. Add sun dried tomatoes and lemon zest, salt and pepper.
- Drain pasta, add to the broccoli. Serve with parmesan and toasted pine nuts.
You can serve it with any Christmas themed film of your choice. I watched traditionally ‘Home Alone’, ‘Home Alone2’, ‘Bad Santa’ and ‘Elf’.
