Healthy Cheesy Pasta!

Let’s enjoy a healthy, cheesy, low-calorie pasta dish!

Do you ever have cravings for creamy, gooey, cheesy pasta, but don’t want to guilt? I have a solution. I’ve created a light pasta dish with fresh tomato, peas and cheese! But there’s a secret ingredient. The super creamy factor, what is it?

Quark. You can also use cottage cheese or low-fat greek yoghurt (but the sourness of yoghurt may not be to everyones taste). Mix this with a packet of french onion soup powder, and you’ve made yourself an extremely flavourful dip or sauce to mix into your pasta! Similar tricks will be featured in my Low-Budget Dinner Party category check that out and stay tuned for more!

Let’s get cooking!

Vegan Zucchini Spaghetti with Homemade Tomato Sauce (without Spiral Slicer)

Try out this healthy, low-calorie & gluten-free vegan Zucchini Spaghetti with homemade Tomato Sauce WITHOUT using a Spiral Slicer.

So I decided I’d try and mimic what the spiral slicer does, just by using a sharp knife.

Also like many of you will experience, I have realised I have a small issue with gluten, so pasta dishes are now a little difficult for my little belly to handle. I was fine with gluten until one day, bam… My belly was the size of the moon. Major bloating is never fun, so I thought, I’m going to try zucchini pasta!

So here we go, see below for how I cut my zucchini and how I make my usual Italian inspired, homemade tomato pasta sauce.

Low-fat White Choc & Matcha Cheesecake

Let me introduce my low-fat white chocolate and Bluebird TeacoΒ “Super Matcha” tea cheesecake! The secret to keeping this a perfect balance of low-fat and full flavour is quark.
