Pappardelle Primavera

This is really one of the most delicious yet easy pasta dishes you can imagine. Full of the flavours of spring, the secret is to cook the asparagus tips, sugar snap peas, baby broad beans and courgette strips lightly so they keep their individual textures. Using Bertolli Light to mix in the garlic and fresh herbs keeps it all low-fat for a super -healthy meal.
