Tomato Mug Pasta

I am continuing my series of food in a cup with another pasta recipe. Now I wasn’t planning on using pasta again but I had half a cup of passata in the fridge to use up and this seemed as good an opportunity as any. So enjoy.

£0.07     15 mins   Serves 1

All you need is

  • 1/2 mug of macaroni pasta
  • Splash passata (enough to cover pasta)
  • 10g grated cheese
  • 1 tsp garlic
  • 1 tsp mixed herbs
  • Pinch salt and pepper
  • Sprinkle of sesame seeds

To make it just

  1. Place a mug half filled with maccaroni pasta and topped with water in a microwave for 5 minutes
  2. Stir and if there is any water drain, if not mix in a tablespoon of passata and then a teaspoon of garlic, herbs, salt, pepper and sesame seeds leave to cook for a further 4 minutes.
  3. Top with grated cheese before placing back in the microwave for an extra minute.
