Boxes and ingredients are packed in facilities that handles Peanut, Nuts, Sesame, Fish, Crustaceans, Milk, Egg, Mustard, Celery, Soya, Gluten and Sulphites. Due to the conflict in Ukraine, it has been necessary to substitute sunflower oil with rapeseed oil in some products without a label change.

Preheat your oven to 200°C and pop a large saucepan of water with a generous pinch of salt on to boil for the pasta. Remove the root and tough dark green leaves from the leek. Cut it in half lengthways and then thinly slice. Chop the broccoli into florets (like small trees).
Add the wheat penne to the pan of boiling water. When the wheat penne has been cooking for 6 mins, add the broccoli to the pan, bring back to the boil and cook for another 4 mins. Once the wheat pasta and broccoli are cooked, drain in a colander, pop them back into the pan off the heat and stir in half of the crème fraîche. Season with a good pinch of salt and a generous grind of black pepper. Keep to one side.
While your wheat pasta cooks, heat a splash of oil in another large saucepan over medium heat. When hot, add the chopped leeks and cook until soft, 4-5 mins. Stir occasionally.
Season the leek generously with black pepper then stir in the remaining crème fraîche. Add the stock powder and water (see ingredients for amount) and stir to dissolve the stock powder. Add the fish pie mix and stir gently to make sure all the fish is coated in the sauce.
Transfer the creamy fish mix to an ovenproof dish. Spread the wheat pasta and broccoli on top, sprinkle on the Italian style grated hard cheese and bake for 15 mins. tTIP: If it looks like your pasta is becoming too brown, simply cover it with foil for the last 5 mins. IMPORTANT: The fish is cooked when opaque in the centre.
Once your fish wheat pasta bake is golden on top remove it from the oven and leave it to sit for a minute or two. Spoon into bowls. Enjoy!
