Chunky Vegetable Pasta Sauce

A simple, tasty pasta sauce recipe.

I had this sauce with lentil pasta. Lentil pasta is really tasty and is very high in protein. I recommend using it if you can get it. If not, you can use another type of pasta.



1 tablespoon olive oil (or alternative cooking oil)

1 onion finely chopped

3-4 cloves garlic finely chopped

1 carrot peeled and finely chopped

1 pepper finely chopped (I used a red pepper but you can use any colour pepper)

half a courgette finely chopped

1 tin chopped tomatoes

1 teaspoon dried mixed herbs (oregano, basil, etc.)

about a handful of chopped fresh basil


This recipe makes 2 servings


Step 1: Heat olive oil in a saucepan and cook onion and garlic for 2-3 minutes. 


Step 2: Add in carrot, pepper and courgette and cook for another 2-3 minutes. 


Step 3: Add in chopped tomatoes and dried mixed herbs. Stir well. Bring to boil, then simmer for about 30 minutes. 


Step 4: Stir in fresh basil. 


Step 5: Serve sauce in a bowl with pasta. You can add some cheese if you like. If you have some sauce leftover you can put it in the fridge and reheat it the next day.
