This is one of my all time favourite veggie meals. Simple but stunning with a good Sauvignon Blanc.

This is amazing. It will be even better with a nice cold glass of wine!

A really lovely recipe- make sure you add the lemon zest and juice together as I forgot! Family of four thoroughly enjoyed. I used natural yogurt instead of cream for a healthier option.

Absolutely delicious! As someone who isn't very good with spice I thought the chillies where added a nice kick. Be sure to marinate the quorn fillets in lemon juice before so it soaks up the tasty zesty taste! Great alternative if you want a break from sauce-based pasta!
