If you are like me and follow a specific diet/lifestyle you will agree that sometimes doing your grocery shopping can really take up some times! Tesco has developed what I think is a genius tool which allows to filter your product search into categories such as vegan, vegetarian, low fat, no gluten and many more. Let me tell you, it’s really a breath of fresh air!
I tested this new lifestyle filter myself and I was so impressed on how much time it saved me. All I had to do was to select “vegan” from the filters available and in just one click all the vegan products available are all in one page. I then ticked the option “no gluten” and with just another click I had all vegan and gluten free option in front of me!
In my shopping I picked up some new no-milk options to make a delicious Cream Cheese and Mushrooms Pasta which is just perfect for speedy midweek dinners. The recipe is super simple, takes no time and it only requires few ingredients!
1 pack of Violife creamy original flavour
1 garlic clove
150gr of baby chestnut mushrooms – sliced in half
200gr of cherry tomatoes
A dash of soy sauce
Salt & pepper to taste
A dash of unsweetened almond milk to thin out the sauce
A glug of olive oil for cooking
Serve it with:
Tesco Free From penne pasta
A sprinkle of Tesco Free From Italian style hard cheese
Some fresh basil leaves
Chilli flakes (optional)
Place the cherry tomatoes onto a baking tray and drizzle them with some olive oil. Sprinkle some salt and pepper and place them in the oven at 180 degrees for 15-20 minutes until soft and squishy.
In the meantime prepare the rest. Add a glug of oil to a pan with the crushed garlic clove. Cook for only few minutes, be careful not to burn the garlic! Add in the chopped mushrooms and a dash of soy sauce. Cook the mushrooms until all the liquid has been absorbed.
Cook the pasta according to the cooking instructions. Drain the pasta and add in the Violife creamy with a dash of almond milk. Mix everything well together. Stir in the mushroom and the roasted tomatoes. Sprinkle with some Tesco Free From Italian style hard cheese and some fresh basil leaves. Enjoy!
