This dish contains many vegetables but also that delicious saltiness of fried minced meat. Trust me: you will love this!

This dish originated when the boyfriend and I made pasta with leftovers. We had some broccoli and mushrooms lying around and decided to mix this together with some cream cheese and pesto: yumm! Today I share with you an updated version, without the pesto but with some other touches instead. Only €1,40 per portion!

I mean I love beans, I love minced meat and I love vegetables… I’m not into spicy food that much but hey, I’ve gotta learn. And this is a great dish to start.
