Syn Free Double Cheese Pasta | Slimming World Recipe

Delicious Syn free double cheese pasta.

Tonight was a carb kind of night #slimwithcarbs. Since the new announcement about having two Healthy Extra A’s per day I have been dying to try a super cheesy pasta dish. It was worth it too….

I would suggest using Dairylea but you could consider using Philadelphia too. I wouldn’t suggest Quark. You are welcome to add or remove vegetables as required. This would also work with a touch of spinach too (but Mr Fatgirlskinny hates it!)

This recipe is for 2 servings. The Dairylea and Cheese can be used as both Healthy Extra A’s. It not remember to add Syns.

Unfortunately this is not suitable for freezing but it would keep for 1 to 2 days in the fridge to be reheated in the microwave. Just stir in a couple of TBSP of water before heating thoroughly.




Servings: 2
Syns: ZERO (If using Dairylea and Cheese as Healthy Extras)


Ingredients

  • 150g Dried Pasta
  • 160g Dairylea Spread, Light (Healthy Extra or 6 Syns Per serving)
  • 100g Reduced 50% Less Fat Cheddar Cheese (Healthy Extra or 6 Syns Per serving)
  • 1 Ham Stock Cube
  • 200g Lean Tinned Ham
  • 1 Red Pepper
  • 1 Large Mushroom
  • 1/4 Tsp Chopped Garlic
  • Pinch Mixed Herbs
  • Frylight

If you would prefer to use different cheese.. you can use 80g Reduced Fat Cheddar or 60g Standard Cheddar Cheese.


Method

  • Add pasta to boiling water with a pinch of salt. Simmer until soft.
  • Meanwhile finely chop pepper and mushroom.
  • Spritz a pan with a little Frylight and bring to a medium heat. Add pepper and mushroom. 
  • Add 2 inches of boiling water to a cup and add crumbled stock cube. Stir and add this to your pan. Cover with a lid and allow pepper and mushroom to simmer.
  • After a few minutes add mixed herbs and garlic and re cover. 
  • Remove ham from it’s tin and use kitchen roll to soak up all jelly.
  • Slice the ham into small chunks and add to the pan.
  • After a few minutes bring to a low heat and add Dairylea. Keep stirring until it has completely melted.
  • Drain pasta and add to the pan with a large pinch of salt.
  • Mix until the pasta is throughly covered in sauce. If the mixture feels a little bit dry try adding a few TBSP of water.
  • Remove from the heat and grate all of the cheese into the pan. Place back onto a low heat and stir until all cheese is melted.
  • Serve and enjoy.

      I think tuna would work great. I love tuna and cheese together.. Mr Fatgirlskinny however hates tuna so i dont often make dishes with it.
