Spaghetti dish full of broad beans, leeks & asparagus tips. Make the most of spring greens with vibrant, filling pasta recipe.

 75 g young broad beans (use frozen if you can't get fresh)
 100 g 2 Packs asparagus tips
 170 g Peas (use frozen if you can't get fresh)
 350 g Spaghetti or tagliatelle
 175 g Pack baby leeks, trimmed and sliced
 1 tbsp Olive oil, plus extra to serve
 1 tbsp Butter
 200 ml Tub fromage frais or creme fraiche
 Handful fresh chopped herbs (we used mint, parsley and chives)
 Parmesan (or vegetarian alternative), shaved, to serve
1

Bring a pan of salted water to the boil and put a steamer (or colander) over the water. Steam the beans, asparagus and peas until just tender, then set aside. Boil the pasta following pack instructions.

2

Meanwhile, fry the leeks gently in the oil and butter for 5 mins or until soft. Add the fromage frais to the leeks and very gently warm through, stirring constantly to ensure it doesn’t split. Add the herbs and steamed vegetables with a splash of pasta water to loosen.

3

Drain the pasta and stir into the sauce. Adjust the seasoning, then serve scattered with the cheese and drizzled with a little extra olive oil.
