I've got a really good tomato pasta recipe, its similar to another post I saw in here...
Fry onion and bacon or ham pieces up till softened, then start adding diced carrot, capsicum, mushrooms, celery, zucchini, then, add 1 big tin of crushed tomatoes + 1 slightly smaller tin of crushed tomatoes too (sorry can't remember tin sizes), so that the crushed tomatoes cover the vegies, mix well, let it simmer (covered) till vegies have softened. I usually add taste by adding, tspn minced garlic, couple of little squirts of basil (from the tubes you buy in the vegie area of your supermarket), pepper and salt and a good sprinke (but not overload) of chilli powder. THen when its nearly ready, sprinkle some parmesan cheese through it. YUM!!!!
Cook up pasta and serve, add extra parmesan if you like, I always do, yummy.
Wholemeal pasta is better for you than the white stuff, but I guess its mainly serving sizes is what matters the most.
Have a go, you'll love it!!
