This recipe from BBC Good food is a truly awesome summer dish, and I think I’m biased towards it because it includes a lot of my favourite veggies. I would say the proportions on this recipe seem to be a little off, and the number of veggies almost overwhelms the pasta so it seems more like a salad then a pasta based dish. If making yourself I would recommend lightening the veggies a little. The sauce itself was also a little on the plain side. I would give it a 6/10 as a pasta meal but would likely make again.

This pasta required few ingredients and was a total breeze to make. I will definitely be making this again as it’s a really nice, quick meal you can whip up in under 20 minutes. Making the sauce and the pasta simultaneously the sauce barely took longer than the actual pasta to cook, this is by far the fastest recipe I’ve made. I added a few chili flakes to make it a little on the spicy side but it could also be good with some added veggies (potentially fried mushrooms?). I’d give this a 9/10 for it’s yummy simplicity.
