  1. Tomorrow at school I have to make a vegetarian pasta dish with 2 vegetables and a sauce, we can use Quorn and stuff like that but I wasn’t there for the lesson so I have to find my own recipe. I’ve tried to find some already but the methods seem quite complicated and I’ll only have about an hour (maybe less) to cook it. I want it to look nice but taste good too as our final evaluation is being done based on this dish. Any recipes would be much appreciated.
