A creamy kid meal with nutritious ingredients. Easy to make and loved by all, this creamy peppers pasta is comforting, flavor packed and so simple to throw together.

Ingredients:

(portion for 1 adult + 1 kid)

  • 150g pasta

  • 2 peppers (I used one yellow and one orange), clean and cut in small cubes (approximately 1cm)

  • 100g cream cheese, or dairy free cream cheese

  • 1/2 onion, finely chopped

  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped

  • 2 tsp olive oil

  • Salt & pepper to taste

  • Parmesan to serve, optional

Method:

  1. Add the cut pepper to a large skillet and cook on high heat until lightly toasted (just peppers without oil or anything else), stirring often.

  2. Then add the olive oil and the finely chopped onion and garlic and cook for 2-3 minutes.

  3. Add 1/2 glass of water and a pinch of salt, place a lid on, and cook slowly for 20 minutes until softened. Don't rush this too much, as cooking the peppers slowly like this really helps to bring out the flavour.

  4. Meanwhile cook the pasta according to the instructions on the pack.

  5. When the peppers are cooked, transfer to a food processor and pulse until smooth.

  6. Add the cream cheese, salt & pepper to taste and pulse until smooth and creamy.

  7. Coat your cooked pasta with the peppers sauce.

  8. Serve with some grated Parmesan if desired.

  9. Enjoy!
