Vegetarian Quorn Pasta

Tasty and filling vegetarian pasta dish with vegetarian ground "beef" mince.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Add pasta to pan of boiling water and boil until tender.
  2. Spray frying pan with low calorie spray and sauté chopped mushrooms, zuchinni (courgettes) and diced onions stirring occasionally.
  3. Add vegetarian ground mince (quorn mince) to frying pan and cook until tender.
  4. Add chopped plum tomatoes to frying pan and season with pesto mix (basil, garlic and parmesan cheese). Alternatively add basil and garlic if desired. Heat sauce mixture through.
  5. Drain pasta, stir in sauce mixture and serve immediately. If desired, sprinkle cheddar cheese on the top before serving.
  6. As an alternative version, a can of drained tuna could be added to sauce mixture instead of vegetarian ground mince. The tuna version can also be chilled and eaten cold.
  7. Note: Quorn "Beef" mince in the UK is the vegetarian substitute for ground mince beef.

This is a tasty and very filling vegetarian pasta dish that I made up myself. With the ingredients I use at home it comes out at about 6.5 WW points for both US and UK Weight Watchers. Note: zucchinni for all the Brits out there are courgettes.
