If you want to make a thoroughly healthy, tasty and simple pasta for all the family, then try this one below. Always a success with every age!
1. Buy certified organic spelt pasta.
Freshly made is best, but alternatively, nothing beats the flavors of certified organic pasta.
2. Slowly simmer 3 cups in filtered water with a pinch of Celtic sea salt.
I usually simmer for about 10 minutes, have a taste, then continue.
3. When soft enough, strain it in cold, filtered water.
This separates the strands of pasta without any tearing.
4. Separately, mix handfuls of organic fresh basil, 1 thinly sliced organic carrot, 1 sliced organic red capsicum, 2 cloves of organic chopped garlic, 1/2 cup of organic cherry tomatoes, 1/4 cup of
organic black olives and 1/2 cup of chopped organic or biodynamic fetta or cheddar cheese.
5. Add approximately 2 tablespoons of cold-pressed, organic olive oil. Or, you may use old-pressed hemp oil or flaxseed oil.
6. Mix well.
7. Add the strained pasta.
8. Sprinkle with Celtic sea salt (to your taste).
9. Mix well.
11. Serve and enjoy.
