Ingredients
  • 300g Asda Conchiglie pasta
  • 1tbsp rapeseed oil
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 325g frozen peas
  • 10g mint, leaves chopped
  • ½ reduced-salt vegetable stock cube, made up to 120ml

Method
  • Add the pasta to a large pan of boiling water. Bring back to the boil, stir once, then simmer fast, uncovered, for 10-12 mins.

  • Meanwhile, heat the oil in another pan and cook the garlic over a low setting for 2 mins. Add the peas, mint and stock and bring to the boil. Simmer, uncovered, for 4-5 mins until tender but still with a little bite. Drain and mash roughly with a potato masher.
