Lunchbox Tricolore pasta and three bean salad with pine nuts and rocket

A super quick 8 minute pasta dish for a simple lunch dish which I ate today.  This is  incredibly filling with a lot of protein in. This kind of food keeps me full from lunch until dinner with no snacking in between. I felt it was lacking in colour somewhat and the chilli flakes did not really show, but it does have lots of flavour. You can add some cherry tomatoes or red pepper/red onion if you fancy it.


1 handful of buckwheat pasta

1 handful of lentil pasta

1 handful of spirulina  tagliatelle spelt pasta


A good drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil

1/2 clove of garlic, finely chopped

1 small handful of toasted pinenuts

salt and pepper

optional- chill flakes


2 tbsp of black eyed beans drained

2 tbps of black beans drained

2 tbsp of green lentils drained

1 handful of rocket

optional- a few basil leaves

salt and pepper

Put the pastas on to cook.

Drain off the beans and add to a serving bowl

Mix together the olive oil, garlic, pinenuts, salt, pepper and chilli flakes if using and set aside.

Once the pasta is cooked, drain well and add to the beans and toss together. Drizzle over the dressing and mix well and then sprinkle the rocket over the top , season with salt and pepper if required and serve.

Big love
