Ingredients

  • 75g string beans

  • 200g asparagus tips

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

  • 350g wholewheat spaghetti or tagliatelle

  • 175g baby leeks, trimmed and sliced

  • 1 tbsp olive oil , plus extra to serve

  • 1 tbsp butter

  • 200ml creme fraiche

  • handful fresh chopped herbs (mint, parsley and chives)

  • Parmesan (or vegetarian alternative), shaved, to serve


Method


STEP 1

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.


STEP 2

Meanwhile, fry the leeks gently in the oil and butter for 5 mins or until soft. Add the creme fraiche 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.


STEP 3

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.
