  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small onion peeled and chopped
  • 3 cloves of garlic peeled and crushed
  • 1 pinch of salt and pepper
  • 500 ml good quality vegetable stock
  • 100 ml whole (full fat) milk
  • 150 g dried spaghetti
  • 1 Small head of broccoli stalk removed, chopped into small florets
  • 16 asparagus stalks trimmed
  • 60 g frozen peas
  • 1 large courgette spiralised
  • 30 g vegetarian Italian-style hard cheese grated
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • Small bunch of mixed herbs such as parsley, thyme and mint, roughly chopped
  • 100 g soft vegetarian goat’s cheese roughly chopped/torn
  • Pinch of salt and pepper


  • Heat the oil in a large frying pan on a medium heat.
  • 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.
  • Remove the lid and stir the spaghetti, then add in the broccoli, stir, place the lid back on and cook for another 2 minutes.
  • 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.
  • Remove the lid, stir in the vegetarian Italian-style hard cheese, lemon juice and herbs, and dot on the goat’s cheese before serving.
