This recipe serves one.

  • 100g dried pasta shapes, such as fusilli or penne
  • 2 baby leeks, trimmed and shredded
  • A few cabbage leaves, shredded
  • 5 tbsp quark
  • 1 tsp dried Italian herbs
  • 5 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 level tbsp grated reduced fat mature Cheddar


Cook the pasta according to the packet instructions, adding the leeks and cabbage 3 minutes before the end of the cooking time. Drain well. Meanwhile, preheat the grill to high. Add the quark, herbs and tomatoes to the pasta, leek and cabbage, stir well and tip everything into an ovenproof dish that will fit under your grill. Sprinkle over the cheese and grill for 2-3 minutes or until golden. You can use other green vegetables like spinach, kale or spring onions instead of leek and cabbage, if you prefer.
