Bean Bolognese


To serve 2 You'll need:
200g spaghetti (or other pasta of your choice)
1 zuchhini
1/2 cup tvp
1/2 tin 4 bean mix
150g passata sauce (Italian tomato cooking base)
1 onion
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon dried oregano
fresh basil leaves to serve

Put the tvp in a bowl with 1 cup of bowling water & allow to absorb for 10 mins.
Bring a pot of water to the boil. Julienne the zucchini and add it to the bowling water along with the pasta. Boil for 12 mins or until al dente and then drain.
In a frying pan combine the chopped onion and the minced garlic. Saute until onion becomes translucent. Add the drained TVP and the beans. Stir in the oregano and the passata sauce. Lightly fry until all ingredients are warmed through.

Serve with torn basil leaves & a corn cob :-)
Very simple & very tasty.
