Serves 4

Ready in about 30 minutes

Syns - Exra Easy Free*, Green Free*

*Add 6 syns if not using the Red leicester as a healthy extra


450g broccoli, broken into florets
350g dried macaroni
4 tomatoes, finely chopped
3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
pinch of dried red chilli flakes
2 tsp dried mixed herbs
2 eggs, lightly beaten
200ml vegetable stock, at room temperature
250g fat-free natural fromage frais
120g Red Leicester, grated
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Mixed salad leaves dressed with lemon juice, to serve


1. Boil the broccoli in a large pan for 4 minutes, or until just tender. Transfer to a large mixing bowl using a slotted spoon.

2. Bring the water back to the boil. Add the macaroni and cook for 8-9 minutes, or until al dente. Drain and add to the broccoli along with the tomatoes.

3. Preheat your grill to medium-high. Put the garlic, chilli, herbs, eggs, stock, fromage frais and three-quarters of the cheese into a food processor and blend well. Pour this over the macaroni mixture, season and toss.

4. Spoon the mixture into a large, shallow ovenproof dish. Sprinkle over the remaining cheese and grill for 6-7 minutes, or until golden and bubbling and the egg is cooked. Serve with the salad on the side.
