Creamy Spinach & Broccoli Pasta with Garlic & Herb Crumb | Slimming Recipe

Creamy Spinach pasta recipe

A delicious vegetarian Slimming World friendly pasta bake with spinach and broccoli, and a crispy garlic and herb savoury crumble topping.

Here is another absolutely delicious Slimming World Friendly Pasta Recipe. This one is vegetarian too, and with the twist of a tasty garlic and herb topping. 

It was super easy to prepare, and ready in under 45 minutes, so perfect for weeknight cooking. 

Goes perfectly with a big side salad, or just on it's own. I had some left over which I took to work for lunch the next day.

I used low fat cram cheese in this recipe to get the nice creamy flavour and texture, but if you wanted to reduce the calories or syns, you could replace the cream cheese with quark or crème fresh instead. 

Just don't overheat as it can curdle!

I added the spinach at the very end so that it wasn't too watery and still leafy, but you can add it in sooner if you like it to be less leaf like!

This is a vegetarian recipe, but if you fancied adding some meat, chicken would work really well in this dish.

I was inspired to make the crumb topping thanks to my love of garlic bread! I love a bit of crunch with my pasta, so instead of making the full garlic bread, the garlic and herb crumb was invented! 

Mixed with cheese, it's almost like a savoury crumble topping, and really takes this dish to the next level!

You will need:


Handful of mushrooms, sliced
1 onion, finely diced
1 broccoli, broken up into small florets 
100ml vegetable stock
1 180g pack low fat cream cheese
1 clove garlic, finely diced
Salt & pepper
Dried pasta of your choice
Handful spinach leaves

The crumb topping:

2 slices wholemeal bread
Mixed Italian herb seasoning
1 clove garlic finely diced
160g extra light cheddar, finely grated

Method:


Preheat oven to 180 degrees. 

Spray a large frying pan with low calorie cooking spray. 

Add in the onions and mushrooms and fry for 2-3 minutes, or until the onion has softened. 

Meanwhile, add the broccoli florets to a pan of salted boiling water, and boil for 5 mins.

Cook your pasta as per the pack instructions, and make sure you save some of that pasta water!

Add the diced garlic clove to the onion and mushroom mix, then add in the cooked broccoli.

Add in the stock, and the cream cheese, reduce heat to minimum.

Stir until the cream cheese has melted and mixed with the stock. 

Add in a couple of tablespoons of the pasta water to bring it all together into a creamy sauce. Add in a pinch of salt and pepper to season. Add the pasta mix to a dish that can go into the oven, if your pan can't.

Stir though the spinach leaves. 

To make the crumb topping, blitz 2 slices of wholemeal bread into crumbs, then mix with the herbs, garlic and cheese. 

Sprinkle the crumb topping all over, then add to the oven for 10 minutes, then remove and serve!
