Method

  1. Cook the pasta according to pack instructions. Tip in the runner beans and sweetcorn (if using fresh or frozen) for the final 4 mins of the pasta cooking time. Drain and set aside.
  2. Mix the fromage frais and pesto together, then pour into the same saucepan, along with the prawns. (If you’re using canned sweetcorn, add it now.) Warm through briefly over a low heat, then tip in the pasta and veg. Take off the heat, toss together and sprinkle with coriander, if using.

This was really lovely. Very quick to make and a good deep flavour too. I used half-fat creme fraiche instead of the fromage frais. Really enjoyed.

Quick, easy and very tasty. Couldn't find coriander pesto so used rocket pesto instead which worked well. Also sprinkled with freshly grated parmesan to finish, yummy! A big hit with me and everyone I've cooked it for!

We love this dish. And its so quick to boot. I changed the coriander pesto to hot chilli pesto which gives the dish a bit of a kick. I also added some anchovies into the mix too, with a bit of parmesand and pepper sprinkled on at the end. Yum!

Cooked it twice! Lovely!! Used Phili in stead of fromage frais. Worked perfectly fine too.

I made this last night as I has some runner beans and homemade parsley pesto to use up. It was fine, but nothing too exciting and I added a good squeeze of lemon juice to zing it up a bit.

Super quick, easy and tasty. I prefer it with red pesto and quark but the original is nice too. I found 75g dry weight pasta per serving is more than enough and saves on calories, bringing it down to 443kcal per serving.
