Weight Watchers Mediterranean Vegetable Pasta

Mediterranean Vegetable Pasta is one of a number of Weight Watchers healthy ready meals which can now be found in the chiller cabinets of supermarkets.

This variety contains a delicious penne pasta in a spicy tomato sauce with chunky courgettes, peppers and basil.

Each pack holds 400g and provides 274 calories and 7 ProPoints

Weight Watchers Mediterranean Vegetable Pasta is a tasty, low calorie meal which counts for 2 of your 5 a day. This is great if you don't have time to prepare vegetables. However, if you do add extra vegetables or salad, there's easily enough to stretch it to serve two people.  

After cooking. (It looks better on a plate with veggies!)
On the pack it says it has a mild spiciness rating, but to my tastebuds it was more like a medium. I wondered whether it was just me but others in my family agreed. Maybe the manufacturers went a bit overboard with the chilli in this particular batch. 

Overall, this is a tasty, light pasta dish which ticks all the right nutrition boxes since it’s low in fat, saturated fat, salt and sugar.

Cooking takes 4 minutes in the microwave or 9 minutes from frozen. To oven cook it’s a bit longer with 25-30 minutes in from chilled or 45-50 minutes from frozen.

Available in chiller cabinets in larger supermarkets.
