This lower fat version of a pasta cream sauce with light cream cheese and skimmed milk works for anyone wanting to lose some calories without losing flavour!

Oh what to do with one leftover gammon steak and chestnut mushrooms...buy a leek and some low fat cream cheese and make some pasta is what I chose to do. Throw in some garlic and white wine and you have a mighty fine mid-week supper. Yes indeedy.
This is my recipe for the kids' favourite. Try adding anything from bacon, mushrooms, tomatoes or onions.
A quick and easy recipe for cream cheese bacon pasta that's had quite a lot of good feedback. These measurements serve 2 adults.
Easy to make macaroni cheese, ready in about 1 hour. Mustard and lemon juice add a little kick, too.
Using shop-bought gnocchi makes this comforting, rustic dish ready in less time than it takes to heat up a ready-made meal. If you're feeling up to it, try making homemade gnocchi, which is more time consuming, but not at all difficult.
This quick supper dish with a creamy sauce is so delicious that everyone will be surprised to learn that the sauce is made from only one ingredient. Colour and texture are provided by broccoli and cauliflower. Offer bread to complement the vegetables and a simple tomato salad to contrast with the creamy sauce.
A recipe we have been making in this family for years - still a favourite.
A super-quick meal that takes only 15 minutes to make. This pasta dish takes advantage of the wonderful marriage of walnuts and blue cheese. Spaghetti is topped with sauteed garlic, walnuts and blue cheese. Perfecto!
