Quick Creamy Beef & Courgette Fusilli

Quick Creamy Beef & Courgette Fusilli

with Parmesan Cheese

In this dish, we've paired a special seasoning straight from Nan's secret spice drawer with a silky cream-based sauce, then followed it up with tender beef mince for a quick meal that looks and smells every bit as good as it tastes.

We’ve replaced the spaghetti in this recipe with fusilli due to local ingredient availability. It’ll be just as delicious, just follow your recipe card!

Instructions

1

• Half-fill a large saucepan with water, add a generous pinch of salt, then bring to the boil over high heat. Cook fusilli, uncovered, until 'al dente', 12 minutes. • Reserve some pasta water (1/4 cup for 2 people / 1/2 cup for 4 people), then drain and return fusilli to the saucepan.

TIP: 'Al dente' pasta is cooked through but still slightly firm in the centre. Little cooks: Older kids can help add the pasta to the saucepan under adult supervision. Be careful, the water is boiling!

• Meanwhile, heat a large frying pan over high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Cook courgette, onion, celery and beef mince, breaking up mince with a spoon, until browned, 6-7 minutes. • Reduce heat to medium, then add cream (see ingredients) and Nan's special seasoning and cook until bubbling, 1 minute. • Add baby leaves, the butter, the cooked fusilli and reserved pasta water and cook until leaves are just wilted, 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

• Divide creamy beef and courgette fusilli. • Garnish with chilli flakes (if using). • Children can add the finishing touch by sprinkling the grated parmesan cheese on top. Enjoy!
