Pasta with tomato and hidden veg sauce

If your little ones are suspicious of veggies, get crafty and try this pasta! A healthy, stealthy meal that is easy to make with very little effort. Top with basil and a little rocket for a pop of colour and peppery flavour. You can freeze the sauce too for later use.

Nutritional Benefits

Whole-grain pasta is low in calories and higher in fiber and also rich in certain micronutrients than refined pasta. Tomatoes are rich in vitamin C, potassium, folate, and vitamin K. Carrots are crunchy, tasty, and highly nutritious and it is particularly a good source of beta carotene, fiber, vitamin K1, potassium, and antioxidants.
