I think most kids love pasta, as do I – but I am off the big carbs at the mo. It’s a “go to” for us. We always have some ingredients to concoct a random pasta  combo. However, this dish is a firm fav. It is so quick and much nicer than any ready made sauce. And doesn’t take that much extra effort at all. One frying pan and few ingredients. No nasties like you get in those jars. Give it a go and let me know how you get on. 

1 tablespoon chopped garlic (ready chopped frozen)

2 tablespoon finely chopped basil (frozen  chopped)

1 can good quality chopped tomatoes 

Olive oil 

1 teaspoon bouillon 

A load of black olives 

Macaroni pasta 

Salt and pepper 

Grated Parmesan 

Fry the garlic and basil in a generous glug of olive oil 

Then add the tomatoes, bouillon and olives.

Cook down for around 5 mins on a medium flame 

Cook the pasta as usual 

Before draining keep a little water back inside the pot.

Then add the sauce 

Serve with the cheese of your liking and fresh basil.
