Pasta with garlicky greens


This is a quick and easy tea and very tasty too.

Heat the oil in a large frying pan. Add the shallots and garlic with a pinch of salt and fry gently for about 15 minutes, stirring so it doesn’t catch.

Add the broccoli (or other greens) and the wine. Let it bubble for a minute before covering so that the broccoli cooks in its own winey steam.

Meanwhile, cook the pasta in plenty of boiling salted water.

Once the broccoli is tender, add the creme fraiche. Heat through then melt the cheeses into the sauce. Add the black pepper and parsley. Taste the sauce to check the seasoning – it may not need salt as the cheeses are quite salty.

Drain the pasta and add to the sauce. Mix well and serve straight away with more parmesan and a glass of white wine.
