This easy, veggie-filled dinner comes together with just five key ingredients (excluding store-cupboard staples).

Ingredients

Broccoli, raw

320 g, frozen

Napolina Organic Chickpea Fusilli

250 g

Vegetarian Parmesan Style Hard Cheese

3 tablespoons, grated

Olive Oil

1½ tablespoons

Lemon(s)

1 zest(s) of 1, plus wedges to serve

Lemon Juice, Fresh

1 tablespoons

Garlic

1 clove(s)

Instructions

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the broccoli and cook for 3 minutes. Remove the broccoli with a slotted spoon and set aside. Add the pasta to the water and cook for 7-10 minutes, until al dente. Remove and drain, reserving 120ml pasta water with a ladle.
  2. In a blender, combine a third of the broccoli, the reserved pasta water, 2 tbsp cheese, oil, garlic, lemon zest and juice. Season with salt and pepper and blitz until creamy and smooth.
  3. Return the pasta and remaining broccoli to the pot. Add the sauce and toss gently to coat. Sprinkle with the remaining cheese and serve with lemon wedges on the side.
