  • 1 1/2 pints hot water or vegetable stock
  • 8 oz wholemeal macaroni or wholemeal pasta

  • Rinse the mushrooms well to remove any grit, then pour boiling water over and leave them to soak while you prepare the sauce.
  • Cook the onion and garlic in the oil for 2 minutes on HIGH.
  • Stir in the tomato juice and herbs, then mix in the water or stock.
  • Drain the mushrooms, remove stalks, slice the caps and add to the liquid, then stir in the uncooked macaroni. Partially cover and microwave for 10 minutes.

  • Allow to stand for 5 minutes, covered, to finish cooking. The pasta should be al dente. Just before serving, season to taste and stir in the low fat natural yoghurt.
