Or not that much or about a normal amount.

Breakfast: 1 banana, 250 ml kefir, 1/4 hot cross bun
Lunch: 2 slices bread with butter
Dinner: plateful of spaghetti carbonara (125g pasta, 75g turkey, 1 egg) with salad, 2 tangerines

Drink: 3 cups of tea with milk, herbal tea, half glass milk, half glass red wine.

When I counted the calories it came out as nearly 1400. I feel full but am wondering is this enough food? I'm not underweight, just want to be healthy.

Sounds okay.
Recommended calorie consumption also takes into account your age, biological sex and lifestyle.
If you are interested in a more healthy lifestyle you could start drinking more still water, some fruit juice and give up the tea.
Have you checked your bmi based on height, weight and age?

It's not just calories that count, but having a healthy balanced diet. There's a lot of starch in there, and it's not good if you eat too many refined carbs like white bread, white pasta and sugary snacks.

You need a more nutrious lunch and far more veg in there, plus more water to stay hydrated.

No, just the usual pasta. It's about 350 cals for 100grams.

very carb heavy - not even wholegrain - very light on vegetables.
