Makes 4 portions

Primavera is Spanish for spring and I love this aptly-named meal from Annabel Karmel’s book. You could also use pasta shapes.


150g spaghetti
1 tbsp olive oil
1 onion, chopped
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 medium carrot (approx 75g), cut into matchsticks
1 medium courgette (approx 75g), cut into matchsticks
125g cauliflower, cut into small florets
150ml light crème fraiche
150ml vegetable stock
50g frozen peas
50g fresh Parmesan cheese, grated


Cook the spaghetti. At the same time, heat the oil in a heavy-bottomed saucepan and sauté the onion and garlic for 1 minute. Add the carrot and courgette; sauté, stirring occasionally, for 2–3 minutes. Blanch the cauliflower in lightly salted boiling water for 5 minutes, or steam until tender. Add the crème fraiche, stock and peas to the carrot and courgette mix. Cook for 2–3 minutes then stir in the Parmesan. Drain the spaghetti and toss with the sauce.

Spaghetti primavera is such an awesome dish, if you know how to make it right. I made this dish at the australian essay writing service easily, and it was one of the best experiences that I've had in my entire life.
