Tasty and looks great, too. You can substitute your favourite pasta shapes for the shells. Lovely served alongside a simple fresh tomato and mixed leaves salad.


2-3 tbsp olive oil
3 leeks, finely sliced
3 medium courgettes, finely sliced
340g pasta shells
230g soft goat cheese or feta cheese, crumbled or cheddar cheese grated

75g thinly sliced sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil

In a large frying pan heat the olive oil and toss in the leeks and courgettes to coat them. Turn the heat down, cover and cook over a low heat until very soft, 10-15 minutes, stir occasionally. At the same time, cook the pasta until ‘al dente’, as per instructions on pack.

Stir the crumbled goat cheese into the leeks and courgettes and mix well. Add the basil and season to taste with salt, pepper.Toss into the hot, well-drained pasta and sprinkle the sun-dried tomatoes over the top. Serve immediately, with grated cheese.
