Ingredients & Cooking Instructions

225g / 8oz pasta shapes

75g / 3oz Greenfields Cheshire cheese

75g / 3oz Greenfields Red Leicester cheese

50g / 2oz baby corn

50g / 2oz cucumber

50g / 2oz frozen peas, thawed

100g / 4oz fromage frais

1 tbsp tomato ketchup

Freshly ground black pepper

1. Cook the pasta in plenty of boiling water for 10 minutes or as directed on the packet. Drain and refresh under running cold water. Drain again

2. Place the pasta in a large bowl and crumble the cheese into the bowl

3. Cut the red cheese into small dice and add to the bowl

4. Slice the baby corn thickly, cut the cucumber into dice (for very young children you may wish to peel the cucumber and remove the seeds as these are less digestible) and halve the cherry tomatoes

5. Add to the bowl with the peas and toss together to combine

6. Mix together the yogurt, ketchup and season with a little pepper if liked, drizzle over the salad and toss to combine

Cook’s Tip

You can vary the vegetable you add to the pasta to suit your child’s likes and dislikes. Try cherry tomatoes or blanched green beans or carrots. You could also add a little chopped ham or chicken to the salad.
