#Foodie - Veggie Noodles With Tomato-basil sauce



We all love a home cooked pasta dish, therefore with our new inspired meal ideas Madia & Matilda have prepared a dish we can all enjoy. 


Ingredients
1/2 tbsp (7 ml) olive oil
4   garlic cloves, pressed 
1 onion chopped up 
2 pkg (10.5 oz/595 g each) grape or cherry tomatoes
1 cup (250 ml) unsalted vegetable stock, chicken stock or chicken broth
1   large aubergine (eggplant for our American friends) , unpeeled
2 medium courgette
2 medium yellow squash
3/4 oz (20 g) fresh basil leaves, snipped
1/2 tsp (2 ml) each salt and black pepper



Directions:
Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat for 1-3 minutes or until shimmering. Add pressed garlic and chopped onion; cook for about 30 seconds. 
Add tomatoes and chicken stock. Cover; bring to a boil over a high heat.  
Reduce heat and simmer, covered, 6-8 minutes or until tomatoes burst. Gently squeeze any whole tomatoes with Tongs. Using grater or veggitable stripper grate vegetables into long strips, avoiding seeds. Stir vegetables into tomato mixture. Cook, uncovered, 3-6 minutes or until vegetables begin to soften, stirring occasionally. Finally stir in basil, salt and pepper. 
You will make enough, for 6 servings, enjoy.


Tips:
For variety, stir in any of the following in Step 4. 
• Fresh baby spinach • Cannellini beans or for our non vegan friends - Diced cooked chicken, Italian sausage.
