• STEP 1

    Cook the pasta following pack instructions, adding the vegetables 4 mins before the end of the cooking time, and the prawns just as the cooking time is up. Reserve a mug of the water, then drain everything and tip back into the pan.

  • STEP 2

    Tip in the lemon zest and juice, and the mascarpone, and heat through, adding enough of the pasta water to create a creamy sauce. Scatter in the shredded mint or basil, a good grinding of black pepper and a little salt. Divide between 2 warmed pasta bowls, scatter over the herb leaves and serve with lemon wedges.


Creamy prawn & greens pasta bake for 2: Cook pasta, veg and prawns as per recipe, then mix with the lemon zest and juice, and a 200g tub light soft cheese with garlic and herbs. Tip into a baking dish, scatter with 50g wholemeal breadcrumbs plus 1 tbsp grated Parmesan and grill to crisp.
