Pasta is one of the most popular dishes in the UK, and it’s particularly handy as a go-to midweek option when we’re all a bit pushed for time. However, it’s not always the healthiest of meals - if you’re not careful, it can quickly get very rich and calorific, especially when adorned with various creamy sauces, fatty meats and cheese toppings.
If you’d enjoy a lighter and more nutritious way to serve delicious, satisfying and healthy pasta recipes at home, look no further than the two recipes below. The straightforward ragu is ideal for a lazy Sunday slow cook, while the speedy and simple prawn orzo is an ideal way to brighten up those quick weeknight dinners.
They’re sure to be big hits with all the family - and both are simple enough to prepare and cook easily, with relatively little energy or expertise required.
