Weight watcher Wholegrain mixed veg pasta By Lahmow

Healthy wholegrain Mixed Vegetable Pasta
This is absolutely good for weight watchers

The pasta is barilla made with 51percent wholewheat. A healthier
(though much more expensive)choice than regular pastas we have around.


Ingredients
1. Barilla wholegrain pasta( available in supermarkets;got a pack for 560naira)
2.Chopped Mixed vegetables consisting of carrots,cabbage,runnerbeans,springonions,green pepper and rodo
3. 2tablespoons of olive oil(healthier cholesterol free choice)
4.Indomie spice (optional)
5.Knorr cubes
6.Salt
7.Curry and thyme
8.Boiled Shawa fish (replaced sardines)

 Whole Grain Pasta
ingredients for cooking whole grain pasta

boil pasta with curry and thyme
drain water from boiled pasta
stir fry ground fresh pepper in olive oil
 add chopped vegetables
fry vegetables with rodo pepper in olive oil

Preparation

1. Par-boil the barilla pasta with the curry and thyme for about 4mins(it gets soft very fast) drained and set aside

2. Pour the 2tbsp of olive oil in a dry pan and fry your rodo(pepper) for a few minutes before adding the other veggies and indomie spice,1 knorr cube and salt to taste.
3.  Stir fry for about 3minutes and then add your boiled fish. Stir together and leave for about 2minutes more.
4. Add the drained par-boiled pasta to the mixture and stir fry for another 2- 3minutes
5.Voila your healthy meal is ready
Consisting of proteins,low carbohydrate and veggies
I made sure I loaded it with more of the veggies and less of the pasta(regardless of it being low in calories)
This meal didn't take me up to 30minutes to prepare.

Remember portion Control is key as well.the fact that it's wholegrain/whole wheat shouldn't make one go overboard with serving.
Enjoy :)

      For the natural fruit juice its best to buy the fruits u like chop them into bits and pour in a blender.blend thoroughly then use a strainer to remove the chaff.pour in a jug and refrigerate for some minutes...QED :)
