Where’s the full recipe - why can I only see the ingredients?

    First time making this in ages. It's always good, I don't bother to zest the lemons and just chuck them in full (cut in half) esp if I only have one lemon (recipe says two). Use a huge pot, I always make the mistake of using too small a pot. I find the portion size spot on, but maybe that's cos we're greedy. Lots of parm to finish!

    I liked this but second the need for lemon or something similar to perk it up at the end. Also glad I prepared the kale before starting to cook as turning the spaghetti every 20 seconds while getting the kale ready sounds like a bit of a faff to me.

    This recipe is phenomenal and immediately made our regular rotation for a quick supper. I like to add some vegetable bouillon with the water and adjust the liquid at the end if it’s a bit too dry. I’ve also successfully subbed spinach, spring greens, and Swiss chard instead of kale.

    Really quick and easy weeknight supper - just what the doctor ordered for something simple after getting in from work. It's adaptable to what's in the fridge, I didn't have the full amount of spinach so added in some sliced sugarsnap peas. It wasn't huge on flavour but was tasty enough and you could easily add in some extra bits to jazz it up.

    So quick and easy. Could cut up a garlic clove and add too for extra flavour.

    Made this as directed as a first-time experiment. Agree that portions are way too large, but it's scaleable. End flavor was a little flat, so I added lemon juice and orange zest and then topped with a chile-spiked salt. Perfect. More vegetables are very welcome and this pasta is a great place to use whatever is lingering in the fridge.

    Just bought paperback edition yesterday for $20. Made one quarter of this recipe today for lunch. Very impressed how easy and delicious this recipe was. Will be making this regularly. Will cut back on amount of spaghetti next time though.

    Loved this recipe - so easy to make, I used Green Pea Pasta Spirals for a protein packed gluten free dish. I also think that 100g of pasta per person is way too much, I used just 120g for 2 people and used a few more veggies and there was still too much for us. Yummy though!

    This was outstandingly simple and delicious. I would add ground fresh pepper to taste for each diner. Only one complaint from one diner, and they hate tomatoes. I would make this again.

  • Silverscreensuppers on June 26, 2017

    I made half this recipe and feel I should point out that you will need a HUGE pan if you are making the whole recipe. I loved the idea of this and it was a fun way of cooking pasta, but for my palate, had to add a LOT of Parmesan and some chilli flakes. Might try again sometime with spinach rather than kale...
