HEALTHY PASTA PRIMAVERA

 

A healthy spaghetti dish full of broad beans, leeks and asparagus tips. Make the most of spring greens with this vibrant, filling pasta recipe.

 

PREP: 10 MINS

COOK: 20 MINS

SERVES: 4

 

INGREDIENTS

 

75g young broad beans (use frozen if you can't get fresh)

2 x 100g pack asparagus tips

 

170g peas (use frozen if you can't get fresh)

 

350g spaghetti or tagliatelle

175g pack baby leeks, trimmed and sliced

1 tbsp olive oil, plus extra to serve

 

1 tbsp butter

200ml tub fromage frais or creme fraiche

handful fresh chopped herbs (we used mint, parsley and chives)

parmesan (or vegetarian alternative), shaved, to serve

 

METHOD

 

Bring a pan of salted water to the boil and put a steamer (or colander) over the water. Steam the beans, asparagus and peas until just tender, then set aside. Boil the pasta following pack instructions.

 

Meanwhile, fry the leeks gently in the oil and butter for 5 mins or until soft. Add the fromage frais to the leeks and very gently warm through, stirring constantly to ensure it doesn’t split. Add the herbs and steamed vegetables with a splash of pasta water to loosen.

 

Drain the pasta and stir into the sauce. Adjust the seasoning, then serve scattered with the cheese and drizzled with a little extra olive oil.

 

Enjoy!!
