We've started using only wholewheat pasta now. Its nicer, we think, and definitely has far less bad sugars and carbs. Great recipe this one for sure.

I love this and make it a lot, though I have altered it slightly. I make it with 75-100g tagliatelle per person instead of wholewheat spaghetti and I vary the veg depending on what we have in. I've found it works particularly well with frozen peas.

I would never make this for guests as it is rather ordinary, but is suitable for an easy, healthy midweek meal. The quantity of pasta would have been too much for us, so I reduced that. We did quite enjoy it, and I will probably make it again.
