Linguine Vegetable Medley

Yes, little me is still alive and well, just extremely busy which is why I've been slacking a bit on blogging. My course has become quite intense very quickly. I've got a lot of work to do so just trying to keep on top of it all in a calm manner so I'll make this a quick one. One of the easiest ways to get in some of your five a day is by cooking up this colourful Linguine vegetable medley. One that's flavourful; the chilli powder gives it a fiery kick, lemon adds a hint of sweetness and citrus, mixed herbs enhance the overall taste and turmeric gives this dish it's gorgeous, bright colour. Of course, the range of vegetables in this medley ensures that your taste buds pick up the variety of textures, you will not be disappointed.
