A healthier option
You can swap mascarpone and crème
fraîche for low-fat cream cheese and
fromage frais. however, don’t overheat
these substitutes as they can split and
turn grainy. For extra fibre, wholewheat
pasta can be used in any of the dishes,
but add 3-4 mins to the cooking time.
Cook pasta following pack instructions, adding
the peas for the final 2 mins of cooking.
Drain the pasta well and return to the pan. Stir
in the crème fraîche, lemon zest and juice, then
season. Serve with the ham strips scattered over.
