Medium Saucepan
Baking Tray



Preheat your oven to 200°C. Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil with 0.5 tsp salt for the penne. Trim the green beans, then cut into thirds.


When boiling, add the penne to the water and bring back to the boil. Cook until tender, 12 mins. When the pasta has 5 mins left, add the green beans and cook until tender, 3-5 mins. Once cooked, drain in a colander and pop back in the pan.


When the oven is hot, pop the Serrano ham onto a baking tray and cook on the top shelf of your oven until crisp and golden, 5-7 mins.


Pop the pasta pan back onto medium-high heat. Stir in the creme fraiche, chicken stock paste and water for the pasta (see ingredients for amount). Simmer until piping hot, 1-2 mins.


Stir in the pesto and half the cheese until combined, remove from the heat. Add a splash of water if its too dry.


Share the creamy pesto pasta between your bowls. Top with shards of crispy serrano and the remaining cheese. Enjoy!
