Everything that makes Italian pasta cuisine so tasty and healthy is in here: Pasta, tomatoes, vegetables and olive oil provide lots of fibre, vitamins, minerals and secondary plant substances. And for those who prefer vegetarian food, this dish is perfect.

The pasta dish becomes even richer in fibre if you use wholemeal spaghetti instead of bucatini.
