Creamy Tomato Pasta

Another request accomplished. A DAIRY FREE creamy pasta. This can also be Gluten free by using gluten free pasta. Now days I always choose alternatives when using pasta in my cooking. I'm always seeking out more nutritious options that are better for my whole family. So next time your at the supermarket or organic grocer try and mix things up a little and experiment with millet and rice pasta or corn and rice pasta or even quinoa noodles, spelt pasta or wholemeal pasta. This is a great mid week, quick and easy dinner that even the kids will love.



1 pk 500g Pasta pf choice
1 Can Coconut Cream
1 Tin Organic Tomato's
1 Brown Onion
2 Cloves Garlic crushed
2 Tbsp Tamari (Wheat Free Soy)
8-10 Button Mushrooms
1/2 Red Capsicum
2 Tbsp Olive Oil.
1 Tbsp Savoury Yeast flakes per serve.

What To Do:

In a deep pan combine olive oil and onion on medium high heat. Saute until translucent. Add mushrooms and capsicum and saute on medium heat for 5 minutes stirring frequently. Add garlic stir for 1 min. Now add tomatoes, coconut cream and tamari and simmer uncovered on low for 20-30 min or until sauce had reduced and thickened.
Cook pasta as instructions on packet until cooked. Drain water and add pasta to sauce and serve with a sprinkle of savoury yeast flakes.
yum yum yum!!!
