    Two of my family's favourites...

    Zucchini pasta - Grate a large zucchini & fry in a little oil with 1 or 2 cloves of crushed garlic until the liquid from the zucchini has evaporated. Stir through cooked short pasta with a good handful of chopped fresh parsley & mint, and lots of parmesan. Season to taste, add slivered almonds or chilli flakes for the adults.

    Lemon chicken pasta - Fry capers, finely sliced red chilli & 2 cloves crushed garlic for a minute or so. Add shredded cooked chicken & finely grated zest of 1 lemon & cook for another 4 minutes. Stir through cooked long pasta with juice of the lemon, a big bunch of fresh basil, roughly torn, and half a cup or so of cream. Season and serve with lots of parmesan.

    My fave ( with some ingreds you can't eat while UTD, sadly), features Danish feta, prosciutto, cherry toms & baby spinach. To bulk it up add chicken or roast pumpkin.
    Another interesting one is to fry fresh wholemeal breadcrumbs in butter and olive oil with garlic and chilli. Serve with buttery pasta and loads of parmesan.

    Pasta primavera - asparagus, zucchini, cherry tomatoes, snow peas, ham, artichoke hearts, pine nuts, garlic and cream. You can make it a healthier option without the cream.
