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.


  1. Cook pasta following pack instructions, adding the peas for the final 2 mins of cooking.

  2. 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.
