Notes

SERVING SUGGESTION: Rocket leaves, drizzled with balsamic vinegar. TIPS: You can use 200g wholemeal spaghetti pasta instead of Slendier spaghetti. It will also no longer be gluten free. Slendier spaghetti is a gluten-free, low-GI pasta made with konjac (a type of Asian yam), corn and rice flours. Find it in the health-food section of most supermarkets.
