Broad Bean and Rocket Linguine

Thursday, 8 September 2011

We asked all of our twitter followers what they would like to see here on Where Are My Knees and we got a few replies asking for more vegetarian recipes so here is a  lovely veggie recipe from the Weight Watchers Simply Enjoy cookbook.

Linguine with broad beans and rocket
8 Pro Points Serves 1

60g shelled broad beans
60g dried linguine
calorie controlled cooking spray
1 garlic clove, chopped finely
2 tablespoons of low fat soft cheese
1 tablespoon lemon juice
25g rocket leaves
salt and freshly groung black pepper

1. Bring a saucepan of water to the boil, add the broad beans and cook for 2 minutes then refresh under cold water. When cool, slip them out of the grey inner shell to reveal the bright green bean inside.
2. Meanwhile, bring another saucepan of water to the boil, add the pasta and cook until al dente. Drain, reserving 2 tablespoons of the pasta cooking water.
3. Heat a non stick frying pan and spray with the cooking spray. Cook the garlic for 1 minute then add the soft cheese, lemon juice and reserved water. Add the pasta and broad beans and toss until combined and warmed through.
4. Remove from the heat stir in the rocket. Season before serving. 

I found this recipe cheap, easy to make and very tasty. Let us know if you make it or any of the recipes on Where Are My Knees. Have you tried any of the recipes on this blog? My favourite is Charlene's Crispy Greek Pie.
