  • ¼ cup sun-dried tomatoes, cut into strips (15g)
  • 1 cup reserved pasta water (120ml)

  • 6 oz of dry pasta (eg rigatoni)** (160g)

Then add garlic, broccoli, sun-dried tomatoes, and cherry tomatoes and stir around once more. Bake for 10 minutes. Pre-cook pasta in boiling water while the sauce is baking (follow package instructions, but cook 2-3 minutes shorter). Your want your pasta slightly undercooked!

Notes

**Pasta: For an extra boost in protein choose a high protein pasta, like bean-based pasta. For a gluten free version use gluten free pasta.
