A delicious way to get the veggies into the kids, and have a colourful dish! this is a quick , easy, nutritious and yummy meal for the whole family as well.

Vegetable and Bacon Pasta


  • 1 small zucchini
  • 1 piece pumpkin
  • 1 small piece cauliflower
  • 2-4 mushrooms
  • 250g bacon pieces
  • 350g pasta
  • 1 large & 1 small tin Evaporated milk
  • 1 tablespoon cornflour
  • cracked pepper & parmesan to serve.


  1. Peel zucchini & pumpkin; chop in small pieces and place in boiling water along with cauliflower. (Use same water you will for pasta, it saves boiling two lots).
  2. When soft, place in large jug with mushrooms, evaporated milk and cornflour. Blend with stick mixer. (use slotted spoon to remove from water rather than drain).
  3. Cook pasta in boiling water until al dente.
  4. In separate saucepan, fry off bacon. Stir in blended veges / milk mixture & cook until slightly thickened, but don’t worry too much cause it will absorb into pasta if you let it stand a few minutes before serving.
  5. Drain pasta and stir in sauce.
  6. Serve with grated parmesan (and cracked pepper for the big people).
