Fishy Pasta

My favourite 10 minute supper dish.

Yesterday afternoon I had an afternoon shift in the gift shop so, after cashing up etc. I got home ater 6 p.m.  A glass of wine and a quick supper was in order.

This is one of my favourite supper dishes when I am in a hurry - reasonably healthy and filling too.

Throw a large handful of wholewheat pasta into a large pan with one lump of frozen spinach and a handful of frozen peas and sweetcorn. Pour on boiling water and bring back to the boil.

Open a tin of sardines or mackerel, preferably in spring water or brine if not, and drain the liquid into the pasta pan. Lightly mash the sardines in a pyrex dish. Add a large spoonful of mixed seeds ( e.g. pumpkin, sunflower, flax, chia etc), some chopped mushrooms and some tinned chopped tomatoes. Add chilli flakes, garlic and dried herbs ( e.g. oregeano, rosemary, thyme etc). Stir well and pop into the microwave for about 6 minutes.

By this time the pasta should be cooked. Strain and tip back into the pan. Add the fishy pasta sauce and give a good stir.

That's it. 10 minues to prepare and cook.  And low-fat too.
