Organic Recipe – Tomato and Basil Pasta Sauce with Salmon and Cheese (£1.95/Person)

Organic Recipe – Tomato and Basil Pasta Sauce with Salmon and Cheese (£1.95/Person)

Yay! My first recipe for an organic meal for 2. I make organic meals all the time now that I follow an organic where possible lifestyle and have wanted to share as many of these meals with you as possible. Finally I have found some time to write a simple recipe for an absolutely delicious meal for 2.

I intend for this recipe to be as helpful as possible and to also provide a few helpful tips along the way. Right.. let’s go!


Key Facts:

  • Serves 2
  • Prep Time: 5 mins
  • Cooking Time: 10 mins
  • I love pasta meals like this as they can be made quickly and easily, tastes flavoursome and is very filling.
  • A balanced meal with carbs, protein and fat all in one dish.

Ingredients (Cost £1.95 Per Person):

  • 150g Organic Wholewheat Fusilli – 30p (£1 for 500g from Tesco)
  • Table Spoon (about 15ml) of Organic Vegetable (Rapeseed) Oil – approx. 5p (£1.50 for 500ml from Tesco, Organic Range)
  • 1 Organic Onion – approx. 13p (63p from Lidl for approx. 5 onions)
  • 1 Organic Tomato – approx. 34p (£1.69 from Lidl for approx. 5 vine tomatoes)
  • Sprinkle (about 5g) of Geo Organics Sea Salt – would be about 2p (£1 from Tesco for 250g)
  • 250g (Half the jar) of Seeds of Change Organic Tomato and Basil Sauce – £1 (£2 jar of 500g, On offer at Tesco, 2 for £4)
  • Whole Tin of Red Salmon – £1.89 (from Aldi, Ocean Rise MSC Approved. You can buy MSC Pink Salmon for £1.09)
  • Generous Sprinkle (about 30g) of Organic Medium Cheddar – approx. 21p (£3.25 for 450g from Tesco)
  • Optional – Naan Bread (I have not managed to find an organic version as of yet)

Equipment:

  • Pan
  • Chopping board
  • Sharp knife
  • Frying pan
  • Spatula/Stirrer
  • Tin opener
  • Fork
  • Cheese Grater

Method:

  1. Get all of the ingredients out on the counter.
  2. Weigh out approx. 150g of the Fusilli into a clean pan and cover with water. Put the cooker on to medium-high heat to ensure it cooks nicely.
  3. Put some vegetable oil into a frying pan on medium heat.
  4. Peel your onion, then get to chopping it and your tomato on the chopping board into shapes of your choice. Put any waste in the bin.
  5. Put your chopped onion and tomato in the frying pan and mix as appropriate. Keep an eye on them. Make sure they do not burn and turn the heat down if necessary.
  6. Add the sprinkle of Sea Salt to the water of the pan of Fusilli and stir well.
  7. Keep your other eye on your Fusilli, use a knife to cut a Fusilli into two. If you can easily cut it in half, it should be ready. You may like to sample one to see what you think for your taste.
  8. Tip away any remaining water if needed from the pan.
  9. Add half of the Tin of the Tomato and Basil Sauce to the pan of Fusilli. Keep stirring the sauce and Fusilli until well mixed.
  10. Add the tomato and onion pieces to the sauce. Mix well.
  11. Open the can of Red Salmon with the can opener. Remove any skin if necessary and use a fork to ‘stab’ the meat into smaller pieces.
  12. By now the sauce should be nice and warm. Serve onto two plates equally, this is a meal for 2 after all..
  13. Share the Red Salmon equally between the two plates. I personally like to add the meat to the middle of the plate for presentation purposes.
  14. Get out your Cheese-Grater and grate some cheese over the two plates to your hearts content, with a consideration of the waistline (cheese is composed of mainly fat).
  15. Get out your fork and eat up! Add some cheeky warm naan bread if you wish.

Dadarrrr..


So there you go, my first organic recipe for a yummy Fusilli dish with Salmon, made of completely organic food, except for the fish which cannot be classed as organic/non-organic; but was MSC (for sustainable fishing) certified. Hopefully I have managed to show you it doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg to eat delicious organic food everyday and not just as a one-off.


I really look forward to your comments and would love to see if any of you follow this recipe or use some of the ingredients mentioned in your own dishes. If you fancy trying organic or already follow an organic lifestyle yourself, say hi.. I don’t bite 🙂

Feel free to share your own tips on how to make eating organic more affordable or anything else that others or myself may find handy.
