  • In a large pot, boil the pasta according to the packet instructions.
  • Meanwhile, lightly steam the brocolli, ensuring it's still tender.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet or wok over medium heat and fry the garlic for 30 seconds. 
  • Add the broccoli and peas to the skillet and toss in the garlic oil for two minutes. 
  • Add the fresh spinach in batches. The spinach leaves will wilt and turn a dark green.
  • Add the lemon zest and creme fraiche, mix well. 
  • Add the cooked pasta to the veggies and sauce and stir through.
  • Bring to taste with salt and pepper.

For some extra flavour, top with grated Parmesan cheese.
