Courgette & Chilli Pasta

So, I hope I’m not alone in this, but occasionally I have bouts of aggressively not giving a fuck about anything. It’ll only last a week or so, but every so often I’ll get bogged down in work, or I’ll have a lot on my mind, or I’ll not be sleeping too well or something and I’ll just be like “nope, don’t really care right now, life. I’ll be hiding underneath my duvet” and I’ll do just that, or close to that. Well the last week or so has been a little like that, I’ve got an exam coming up and life was just getting to me a bit (not in a bad or sad way, just in an annoyed way!) and I haven’t really been putting a load of effort into revision or writing on this blog, which has sucked… But I visited home over the weekend and coming back has given me a load of energy, so… Yeah. Long and short is that I’ve been lazy, and I’m done with being lazy now! I’m hardcore revising, I started a volunteering scheme which is so much fun, and I actually made a really nice meal today instead of just eating cheese sandwiches, so that’s a start!

This is a super easy and really cheap meal to make, and I hope you like it! It’s a really good mid-week meal because it barely takes any time and still has loads of good stuff in it, so do give it a try :)
