Creamy Allotment Vegetable Pasta

Allotment Pasta

On Friday my mother-in-law came bearing gifts from her allotment. The produce was so fresh that I changed my original dinner plan (slow cooker spag bol) so I could use these gorgeous veggies in a summer pasta dish. This would work well with other veggies and herbs, so adapt it to suit what you have. It turned out to be a really filling meal and hubby didn't even notice the lack of meat, although you could always add in some bacon if you wanted, or maybe salmon.


| Serves: 2  | Prep Time: 10 Minutes | Cook Time: 10 Minutes  | Total Time:  20 Minutes |


  • 250g Pasta
  • Handful Sugar Snap Peas
  • A few stems of Purple Sprouting Broccoli
  • 1 Courgette, halved and then sliced into half moons
  • 2 Spring Onions, sliced
  • Basil leaves
  • 100g Cream Cheese
  • 50g Parmesan, grated
  • Juice of half a Lemon
  • Salt and Pepper


  • Step 1: In a frying pan, gently cook the courgette and spring onion until soft.
  • Step 2: Meanwhile cook the pasta in a pan of salted water and add the sugar snaps and broccoli for the last 3 minutes of cooking. Drain.
  • Step 3: Toss the pasta and veg into the frying pan with the courgette and spring onion, with about 4 tbsp of the pasta cooking water. Stir in the cream cheese, Parmesan, lemon and basil leaves and stir until the cream cheese has melted. Season.

  1. I am loving all the creamy, cheesy goodness with the garden veggies Beth.

  2. Right now anything healthy gets my vote!


  3. It's often difficult to decide what to do when you're not getting enough from the garden to provide two portions of any one veg - I'll keep this idea in mind.

    I used the first pickings of our garden veg - courgettes, mange tout and chard - with pasta and pesto. The courgettes and chard also made a good tortilla/frittata with red onions and goat's cheese.

  4. Looking fantastic - as per usual ;0)

  5. What more do you need from pasta then to be vegetable and creamy?! Great idea. Definitely one of meals I have to try in the following weeks.
