Welcome back to Sandtondiet and to this week’s super quick and easy roast garlic pasta putanesca.

If you are looking for a quick mid-week flavour bomb then this is the recipe for you! The bit that take’s the longest is roasting the garlic. After that the dish takes 5 minutes to assemble and then dinner is ready.

The addition of the roast garlic to this recipe gives this pasta a beautiful rich complexity. The other bonus of roasting the garlic is that your breath doesn’t smell quite as bad afterwards. So don’t be scared off by the amount of garlic in this pasta, it is well worth it!

If you need a bit more pasta inspiration, then look no further. This quick and easy one-pot pesto, olive and tomato pasta or this  Quick and easy chicken lo mein  are just as delicious.

This recipe for The Mediterranean Dish also looks superb She really knows how to pack flavour into food!

I hope that you enjoy this as much as we did! Until next time, Leanne xoxo
