Garlic Press
Large Saucepan



Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil with 0.5 tsp salt for the penne.

Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).

Drain the fish pie mix and pat dry with kitchen paper. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw fish.


When boiling, add the penne to the water and bring back to the boil. Cook until tender, 12 mins.

Once cooked, drain in a colander and pop back in the pan. Drizzle with oil and stir through to stop it sticking together.


Meanwhile, heat a drizzle of oil in a large saucepan on medium-high heat.

Add the garlic and fry until fragrant, 30 secs.


Add the creme fraiche, vegetable stock paste and water for the sauce (see pantry for amount). Bring up to a boil.

Gently stir through the fish pie mix. Lower the heat and simmer gently, stirring occasionally, until the fish is cooked, 5-8 mins. IMPORTANT: The fish is cooked when opaque in the middle.


Add the spinach to the pan a handful at a time until wilted and piping hot, 1-2 mins.

Stir the pasta, Italian style cheese, pesto and butter (see pantry for amount) into the sauce until combined and melted.

Taste and season with salt and pepper to your liking. Add a splash of water if the sauce is looking a little thick.
