I love this pasta recipe because it's a yummy creamy pasta dish that you can eat without worrying about it turning you into the size of a house. It's a good one for those nights when you don't really want to be bothered about dinner and you forgot to get meat out.
Low-fat Creamy Pasta
Fresh pasta (Now fresh isn't essential but it is nice. I buy the Latina fresh fettucini, that is 375g)
8 mushrooms, chopped
1 zucchini chopped
5 rashers shortcut bacon, chopped
1 onion, chooped
1 capsicum, chopped
oil for frying
1 can low-fat evaporated milk
cornflour for thickening (approximately 2 tbs)
Grated cheese (1/2 cup)
Thinly Sliced Avacado
First, put some water on to boil to cook the pasta in. Then fry up your bacon, onion, zucchini, mushrooms, garlic and capsicum in an oiled pan.
Once the water has boiled cook your pasta until just done.Then drain the pasta and combine it with the ingredients in the fry pan. Mix.
Then pour in almost all of the can of evaporated milk, and combine on a low heat. Then mix cornflour with the leftover evaporated milk, and then just add this slowly while stirring until the pasta is as creamy as you like it.
Then add some wholegrain mustard to taste, (I tend to use a fair bit so I'll leave that one up to you!) and the grated cheese. Finally, as a last thing, you can stir in a some chopped avocado, (but make sure you don't cook it!) and serve.
