How to make a One Pot Garlic and Herb Spaghetti and Courgetti


  1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan on a medium heat.
  2. Add the chopped onion and fry gently for a couple of minutes until the onions start to go translucent. Add in the garlic, salt and pepper. Stir and cook for 30 seconds. Add the stock and milk. Bring to a simmer, then stir in the spaghetti. Lower the heat so there’s a gentle bubble, then place a lid or some foil on the pan. Turn down the heat and cook for 10 minutes.
  3. Remove the lid and stir the spaghetti, then add in the broccoli, stir, place the lid back on and cook for another 2 minutes.
  4. Next add the asparagus, cook with the lid on for 2 mins, then add the peas and spiralised courgette. Cover again and cook for 2 mins.
  5. Remove the lid, stir in the vegetarian Italian-style hard cheese, lemon juice and herbs, and dot on the goat’s cheese before serving.
