170-225g (dry weight) pasta
2 courgettes
1 head of broccoli
Tub of soft cream cheese
Vegetable oil
Salt and pepper
Spinach leaves.

Handy Hint

Don't overcook the veg as it needs to have plenty of bite! Use flavoured soft cream cheese to vary the dish.


1. Boil the pasta in lightly salted water until almost cooked.
2. Meanwhile heat a couple of tablespoons of oil in a large frying pan or wok. Add broccoli (broken into small pieces) and courgette (chopped into approx 2cm/1 inch pieces). Cook fairly hot, tossing around the pan to cook all sides, for around 5 mins. 3. Drain pasta and add to veggies mixing well. Turn down heat and make a well in the centre of the veg/pasta and add a tub of soft cream cheese. Let it melt slightly then stir to combine. Season with salt and pepper.
4. Line a large bowl with washed spinach leaves and tip the pasta over the top. Serves 2 - 4 people depending on how much pasta you use.
