The leader at my Weight Watchers gave us this recipe. It’s from the Filling and Healthy Day booklet. It’s really good. You could make a batch and freeze it, although I haven’t tried freezing it yet. The recipe doesn’t mention salt and pepper but I think it needs a fair bit. Also I over complicated the method, word of advice follow the method below and it will save you a lot of time. There’s no points value for this one but it’s pretty low, just calculated whatever weight of pasta you use, the oil, the quark and the egg.
Any vegetables that you like and are suitable for baking (e.g. celeriac, butternut squash, courgette, red pepper, and red onion)
1 fresh chilli, chopped
1 1/2 cans tinned tomatoes
150g wholewheat pasta
1 tub quark
chopped fresh herbs of your choice
chopped fresh basil
1. Roast veg with 1 teaspoon of healthy oil and the chilli until soft and coloured.
2. Add chopped tomatoes and plenty of fresh herbs and continue to cook in the oven until reduced and thick.
3. Add the freshly cooked wholemeal pasta and top with a mixture of quark and beaten egg.
4. Bake until golden and garnish with torn fresh basil leaves.
Tip: Beat the egg and the quark together in a bowl. Then use a spatula to spread the quark and the egg mixture.
