All in One Creamy Red Pasta
Cooked in one pot only, this simple recipe is creamy, tangy and delicious, great to batch cook for meal preps or for a large family.
This is a favourite dish of mine that I created in Australia, I was cooking for a family while I was in Sydney and they wanted a quick and simple dish one evening... the creamy pasta was then born.
This dish is perfect for those who want to transition to a plant based/ vegan diet and are looking for a little inspiration. This creamy pasta uses no dairy, yet has such a creamy taste. Trust me, this one you don't want to miss out on.
If your gluten free, I would highly recommend using lentil or chickpea pasta, you can grab a couple of cheap bags of this pasta from Aldi and its super cheap.
How to make all in one creamy red pasta...
Makes 5 portions Prep 10 mins Cook time 15 mins
250g of pasta
5 cloves of garlic
1 large red pepper
125g of frozen peas
125g of cherry tomatoes
25g of red curry paste (vegan)
1 can of coconut milk
1 of chopped tomatoes
(if you would like more than 5 portions, double the pasta, coconut milk, curry paste and chopped tomatoes)
1. Prepare your vegetables first by dicing your onions and garlic and cubing your courgette and large red pepper.
2. In a large pan, first add 1 tbsp of olive oil to fry your onions and garlic until they turn translucent. Once they have softened, add your pepper and courgette into the pan.
3. Next add in your red thai curry paste, cook for a few seconds to intensify the spices and then add your chopped tomatoes and coconut milk. Combine all ingredients so they are well mixed.
4. Next add your pasta into the pan and combine your ingrediants. The coconut milk and tomatoes should just cover your pasta, bring your sauce to the boil and gently simmer to cook your pasta.
5.Once pasta has softened, add in your frozen peas and halved cherry tomatoes and combine. Once the frozen peas have cooked, serve in bowls and top with vegan cheese (optional) for an extra creamy taste.
And your one pot pasta is complete. This is made for those dinner times where you need a good old portion of carbs and don't want to spend a lot of time making it.
