Instructions

Start the Prep
1

a) Boil a full kettle.

Boil the Pasta
2

a) Pour the boiled water into a large saucepan with 1/2 tsp salt and bring back to the boil. 

b) Add the linguine and cook until tender, 10-12 mins.

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

Cook the Leek

b) Once melted, add the leek and season with salt and pepper. Cook until softened, 5-7 mins, stirring occasionally.

Build the Sauce
4

a) Add the garlic and sugar for the sauce (see pantry for amount) to the leek pan and cook, 1 min.

b) Stir in the creme fraiche, sun-dried tomato paste, veg stock paste, lemon zest and water for the sauce (see pantry for amount).

c) Bring to the boil and simmer until reduced slightly, 2-3 mins.

Bring it All Together
5

a) Add the cooked linguine and peas to the sauce. Toss to coat and simmer until piping hot, 1-2 mins. 

b) Stir in the lemon juice and half the cheese, then remove from the heat.

c) Taste and season with salt and pepper if needed. Add a splash of water if it's a little dry.

Serve Up
6

a) Share the linguine between your bowls.

b) Sprinkle over the remaining cheese and top with a handful of rocket.

Enjoy!
