    Prep:30min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:50min 

    1. Fill a large saucepan with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the pasta and return to the boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 11 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink.
    2. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Stir in the courgette, pepper, carrots, mushrooms and onion; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for one minute more. Stir in the tomatoes, chicken stock, parsley, basil, oregano and crushed chillies. Bring to the boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer until sauce thickens. Stir in the pasta and cook until heated through, about 2 minutes. Top with Parmesan and Gouda cheeses before serving.

    This was fantastic! I used quite a bit more gouda than the recipe because I had it and a red pepper instead of green (red was curiously less expensive than the green). And of course, it took me a bit longer than 50 minutes to get it finished. Maybe I'm a slow veggie chopper. Worth the work and I will definitely make this one again!  -  26 Mar 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Used Mozzerella because I didn't have gouda. Substitutted some veggies to use what I had on hand, threw in asparagus - EVERYONE loved! Small picky children included. Leftovers great too.  -  31 Mar 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    We enjoyed this... healthy and tasty. I can't wait to try it with fresh herbs and veggies from the garden this summer. The whole wheat pasta goes very well with this dish and the smoked gouda is a must, I wouldn't replace it with anything else! Thanks for sharing.  -  08 Apr 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
