RECIPE TIPS
A HEALTHIER OPTION

You can swap mascarpone and crème fraîche for low-fat cream cheese and fromage frais. however, don’t overheat these substitutes as they can split and turn grainy. For extra fibre, wholewheat pasta can be used in any of the dishes, but add 3-4 mins to the cooking time.
