Alternative Gear


Serves = 4

250g penne pasta

¼ green cabbage, roughly chopped

1 bunch silverbeet, roughly chopped

1/3 cup grated cheddar cheese

1/8 cup grated or shaved parmesan cheese

2 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil

2 tsp (or cloves) crushed garlic

It’s this easy

  • Pre-heat oven to 200 degrees Celsius
  • Fill a large pot to ¾ full with water, place on the stove and heat on high until the water is boiling
  • While water is heating to boiling, with a large, sharp knife, roughly chop the cabbage and the silverbeet, finely chop the garlic
  • Once the water in the pot has boiled place the 250g of pasta, chopped cabbage and silverbeet into the pot. Turn heat on the stove down to medium-high, cook for 14 minutes stirring occasionally
  • Strain the water from the pasta, cabbage, and silver beet
  • Pour pasta, cabbage, and silver beet into a large baking dish. Sprinkle the grated cheddar cheese and parmesan on top of the pasta
  • Place the baking dish in the pre-heated oven to cook for 20 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and golden
  • When the pasta mix has 5 minutes left in the oven, heat the olive oil in a pot over medium-high heat for 1 minute. Add the chopped garlic and cook while stirring for 2 minutes
  • Remove the baking dish from the oven and pour the hot garlic and oil over the pasta
  • Serve


Add any extra vegetables you like (e.g., grated zucchini, a finely sliced leek, spinach)

Can include a combination of multiple different cheeses or add some herbs for extra flavour

What is healthy eating?

Eating healthy is making sure you enjoy a wide variety of foods from each of the five major food groups daily, in the amounts recommended. The five major food groups as recommended by the Australian Guide to Healthy Eating are:

  1. vegetables and legumes/bean
  2. fruit
  3. lean meats and poultry, fish, eggs, tofu, nuts and seeds, legumes/beans
  4. grain (cereal) foods, mostly wholegrain and/or high cereal fibre varieties
  5. milk, yoghurt, cheese and/or alternatives, mostly reduced fat.

Foods are grouped together because they provide similar amounts of key nutrients and eating a variety of foods from the list above helps to promote good health and reduce the risk of disease.

How do I improve my diet?

If you want to improve your diet you have come to the right place. By completing the Healthy Eating Quiz you’ll receive instant personalised feedback and a report on your diet quality to highlight any areas where you can improve your overall eating habits.

Is my diet healthy?

Dietary habits are different between people. Some people choose to follow a particular diet (i.e., Keto diet or vegan diet) while some have to make changes due to certain food restrictions or health conditions. If you want to know if what you usually eat is healthy, then do the Healthy Eating Quiz today to give you the answers in less than 10 minutes.

Why is healthy eating important?

Your HEQ score and personalised feedback report is based on the frequency and variety of healthy core foods you usually eat. This is important because no single food contains all the nutrients we need to stay healthy. Some foods are higher in nutrients than others and people who have a lot of variety in the foods they eat are more likely to be healthy and to stay healthy. In other words, if you can eat a large variety of vegetables as opposed to only 2-3 types of vegetables, the benefits are much greater. This type of diet also helps you to feel better, think better and perform better during your usual daily activities.
