  • 150 g pasta (raw weight)
  • 400 g tin of chopped tomatoes
  • 100 g diced onion
  • 200 g diced red pepper
  • 2 cloves grated garlic
  • 400 mls vegetable stock (made with 1 veg stock cube)
  • 10 g cajun seasoning (you can swap this for any seasoning you have available)
  • 1 teaspoon mixed herbs
  • 100 g extra light cream cheese
  • 1 kcal spray
  • Salt & pepper


  • Heat a pan on a medium heat and spray well with 1 kcal spray
  • Add the onion and garlic to the pan, and cook until soft before adding the peppers.
  • Stir fry for a further 2 minutes and add in the Cajun seasoning.
  • Cook for about 2-3 minutes and then add in the veg stock and tin of chopped tomatoes.
  • Bring to a simmer and season with salt, pepper and the mixed herbs.
  • Add in your dry pasta and simmer for about 10-15 minutes until the pasta is almost cooked. The liquid will reduce and the sauce will thicken as it cooks.
  • Stir in the cream cheese until it is melted and simmer for another minute or two until the pasta is cooked.
  • Taste and season as required before serving.
  • OPTIONAL: If you want a more satisfying meal option, add your favourite protein source. Some options which would be nice are diced chicken breast, reduced fat chorizo or prawns.
