a) Fill a large saucepan with water and bring to the boil with 0.25 tsp of salt for the pasta. b) Once boiling, add the rigatoni to the pan and cook until tender, 12 mins. c) Once cooked, drain in a colander, pop back in the pan, drizzle with a little oil and stir through to stop it sticking together.

a) Once the spinach has wilted, add the creme fraiche, water for the sauce (see ingredients list for amount) and the chicken stock powder into the pan. b) Stir to dissolve the stock powder. c) Bring to the boil then remove from the heat. d) Mix in half the hard Italian cheese. e) Season to taste with salt and pepper.
