This week’s menu…

Now that the holiday season is well and truly over, everyone seems to be telling you to watch what you eat.

But don’t worry, healthy eating does not need to be a penance or a chore.

We have some lovely dishes this week, including a lighter version of your favourite baked pasta, cannelloni.

Ricotta and Parmesan are medium fat cheeses which provide plenty of protein and calcium, needed to build strong healthy bones. The tomates are an excellent source of vitamin C, beta-carotene and lycopene, all of which are antioxidants which can help keep your immune system healthy.  Cooking the tomatoes with a little olive oil means that that the lycopene is released from the tomato cells and more easily absorbed by the body. The pasta provides complex carbohydrates, needed for slow release energy.

Bon appetit!
