I am not totally certain what exactly Rasta Pasta is aside from pasta with vegetables in it. I found that children that hate veggies ate this stuff up with relish, like literally finished the pot off. I made it when I was visiting one of my host families last week, they asked for the recipe and to make it one more time before I left, so here is the recipe!
Oil to cook in and make sauce with (****True Rastas do not use oil unless they press it themselves)
variety of veggies for this one I had:
bok choy (pak chow if you live in Jamaica)
All purpose seasoning
I cooked the pasta to al dente and left it in the pot with some water to keep for the sauce later. I sautéed up the veggie, leaving the greens until the end. I added the greens and beans along with some pasta water and seasoning jus to steam the greens down a bit before mixing the pasta. That’s pretty much it. Sometimes it has mayonnaise in it, but I do not think it needs that.
The second time I made this I used black beans, Choyote, a can of mixed vegetables, bok choy, zucchini, peppers, onions, okra, yellow tomato, and a little bit of kale. This was based on what was available and what I had on hand.
