This recipe by Salvelio is perfect for those days when you never got around to doing the big shop and your pantry is just about bare. It’s quick, costs hardly anything to make and you’re sure always to have the ingredients around. It’s sounds too simple to amount to a tasty recipe but do not fear, the combination is surprisingly enjoyable.

Serves 2


1/2 pack of pasta shapes (25og); olive oil for frying, sea salt and freshly ground black pepper; one potato, peeled; 2 carrots, peeled, 1/2 onion, thinly sliced.


Using a potato peeler, create thin slivers of potato and carrot. Heat some olive oil (not too much) in a pan and fry the onion till slightly softened, then add all the slivers  till cooked through but not breaking apart too much. Season to taste mid-way through the cooking.

Pile the veggies on top of your cooked pasta and serve.

    Although we’re always taught not to have two carbs per meal (ie having potato and rice in one sitting) I think I’ll give this recipe a try. It’s inexpensive and although it has lots of carbs it somehow still looks healthy in the photograph, if you know what I mean!

    As a vegetarian, two carbs at one sitting is not unusual. Another point, it is not a meal that would be served
    up on a daily basis. Your comment it “looks healthy”, really says it all.
