For added crunch, sprinkle some roughly chopped toasted hazelnuts over the top of the pasta.



  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 echalion shallots, finely sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 small savoy cabbage, shredded
  • ½ lemon, zest, plus a squeeze of juice to serve
  • 250g Seeds of Change Organic Spinach Trottole Pasta
  • 75g gorgonzola piccante, cut into small pieces
  1. Heat the oil in a large, wide pan set over a medium heat and fry the shallots for 8 minutes until lightly golden. Stir in the garlic and cook for 1 minute, then add the honey, cabbage and 3 tbsp water; fry for another 3-4 minutes until just wilted. Add the lemon zest and season.
  2. Meanwhile, simmer the pasta in a pan of boiling salted water for 8 minutes. Scoop out a cupful of the cooking liquid, then drain. Tip the pasta into the wide pan with 3 tbsp of the cooking liquid; toss everything together over a high heat. Fold through the gorgonzola, check the seasoning and serve immediately with a squeeze of lemon juice.
