Nutritional values

Thanks to its high fibre content, wholemeal pasta keeps you full for a long time and stimulates digestion. The fish provides valuable protein; the vegetables are rich in secondary plant substances that support the immune system.

If children are eating with you, replace the red wine with vegetable stock and do without the chilli pepper.
