About this recipe: We all love pasta in this house which is no bad thing when you consider how versatile it is to use and how quick it is to cook. We often throw together speedy recipes at the last minute when dinner time is looming but preparation time is in short supply. With just a few staple ingredients from the larder cupboard this pasta dish proved a firm favourite with everyone. Not only was it delicious but it also took only 15 minutes from start to finish. We tripled the quantities below to feed our family but the recipe shown has been adjusted to serve 4 to 6 people.
