Quick and easy pasta dishes


One of the best things about pasta is that it's as quick to make as it is delicious. Here are some of our favourite quick pasta recipes that can be made in less than 30 minutes. With recipes including pesto pasta with a tasty twist by swapping half the basil in a traditional pesto for rocket to give this pasta dish a sharp peppery flavour. Prefer a creamy carbonara? Try our healthier version of fettuccine with creamy cauliflower, peas and bacon crumble using cauliflower and parmesan to create a light creamy pasta sauce. Or make 'rag pasta' in our French rag pasta bourguignon. Rag pasta involves simply tearing fresh lasagne sheets into rag-like pieces. The fact this pasta is made from fresh lasagne sheets means it only takes 2 minutes to cook making your pasta dish even quicker to make!


Quick tips for making your pasta dish healthier:


  • Opt for a tomato-based sauce made with ZeroPoint™ crushed tomatoes or passata (tomato puree). Jazz it up with a wide range of tasty seasonings, such as chilli, capers, garlic, onion, basil, parsley and chives.
  • Substitute all or a portion of wheat pasta for ZeroPoint zucchini noodles (zoodles). Check out our recipe for Singapore zoodles using zucchini noodles.
  • Full your pasta with filling ZeroPoint foods like vegies, legumes or skinless chicken breast.
