ingredients

  • 350g dried fusilli pasta
  • 1 small leek, trimmed and thinly sliced

method

  1. Preheat your grill to its highest setting. Cook the pasta in a large pan of lightly salted boiling water for 8 minutes. After 4 minutes, add the leek, spinach and sweetcorn, making sure the water comes back to the boil quickly. Drain the pasta and vegetables and tip back in the pan.

  3. Spoon the pasta into a large ovenproof dish, sprinkle over the remaining cheese and place on a baking tray. Grill for 10 minutes until the cheese is melted and browning.
  4. Serve with salad or your favourite fresh veggies.
