White pasta, dry

Mushrooms

100 g, thinly sliced

Spring Onions

4 medium, thinly sliced

Medium fat soft cheese

200 g, with herbs

Egg, whole, raw

Skimmed Milk

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 4/180°C/fan oven 160°C/350°F. Spray a 26x16cm or 23cm (9 inch) square baking dish with low fat cooking spray.
  2. Cook the pasta shells in lightly salted boiling water until just tender – about 8-10 minutes. They should retain their shape.
  3. Meanwhile, spray a non-stick saucepan with low fat cooking spray and cook the mushrooms and half the spring onions until softened and lightly browned. Remove from the heat, cool for a few minutes, then mix with half the soft cheese.
  4. Beat the eggs with the remaining spring onions, soft cheese and milk. Season. Pour into the baking dish.
  5. Drain the pasta shells and fill them with the mushroom mixture, arranging them in the baking dish. Transfer to the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, until set.
  6. Make the salsa by mixing together the tomatoes, red onion, lemon juice or vinegar and parsley. Serve with the fritatta.
