I wanted a full meal using mainly vegetables, so tried this combination. If you are a meat eater, this could be a good accompaniment with your meat dish however it was ample for me as a main meal.

I added some cheesy sauce and hot chillies to give it some punch. It would also be nice with a simple, dressed salad.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 25 minutes
Makes: 3 - 4 servings

About 100 g whole-wheat pasta
Chillies to taste - I used dried red ones, whole
2 cups sliced mushrooms - you can use any mixture
2 cups brussel sprouts, chopped finely
1 clove garlic, crushed
cup dry sherry
1 cup milk
1 tbsp plain flour
cup cheese, grated, plus a bit extra to garnish

Cook the pasta as per packet instructions.

Leave in the hot water till almost ready to serve to keep pasta hot.

Meanwhile, heat a bit of oil in a wok and add the chillies.

After a minute, add the mushrooms and brussel sprouts.


Cook, stirring continuously for about 10 minutes.

Add the garlic and cook, stirring for about a minute.

Add the sherry, and cook, again stirring, until most of the sherry evaporates - this will only take about a minute.


Mix the flour with the milk, and add to the wok with some salt and pepper to taste.

Cook until the sauce thickens, about 2 minutes.

Fold in the cheese until it is melted.

Add the drained pasta, to these vegetables and mix gently till it is all coated and hot.

Serve with extra grated cheese.
