  1. Hi is there anything I could replace the quark with as I’m lactose intolerant an am unaware of an alternative. Would you just increase the yogurt (dairy free of course) to replace it?

    1. Hi Karla,
      Yes you can just increase the amount of yogurt. You could try the new plain Alpro Go On one which seems quite suited for cooking purposes

  2. I’ve made this and I love it best 1 I have had but I seem to eat bowls of it how much can I actually have before syning it xx

  3. Oh wow this looks fabulous!! I’m always looking for new takes on classics, and this sounds perfect. My husband would just love it! Thanks!!!

  4. Do you know roughly how much dry pasta you would need? I don’t want to end up cooking far more than the 500g needed.

  5. Hi how long will this last?? Iv made a big bowl as part of a salad so won’t be using all in one go, delicious what I had last night

    1. Hi Becky
      As long as this is kept in the fridge, it’ll be fine for up to 48hrs. It’ll just need a stir to ensure the dressing is mixed through. 🙂

  6. When it says that you could add some lighter than light mayo (using syns) would you take any of the other ingredients away/use less of? Or just add mayo as well?

    1. Hi Gemma,
      I’d just add a bit of lighter than light mayo, you don’t need to take anything away. It’s not enough to make a difference, quantities-wise. 🙂

  7. Made this for a buffet yesterday. It was lovely, although I added a bit extra of the seasoning. Just had some left overs for dinner tonight.

    1. Hi Mandy
      We use yogurt to loosen the mixture off a bit, as it thins the quark to help coat the pasta more easily. As fromage frais is thicker, it may not coat the pasta so well. Hope that makes sense!

      1. Hi Anna
        Using fat free yogurt is fine, it will still coat the pasta etc. We suggest a combination of quark and yogurt to make a slightly thicker dressing. 🙂

  8. Hi, can I use Tesco healthy living cesear salad dressing instead of the natural yougert and quark, I’m not a fan of either, I know is have to syn the dressing, or is there a seasoning I could add to the natural yougert..
    Thanks Mary

    1. Hi Mary
      The Tesco Healthy Living Caesar dressing would be fine to use instead. As you’ve already mentioned, you’ll need to count the Syns used on the dressing, too. Enjoy! 🙂

    1. Hi Lauren!

      You could replace the seasoning with:

      1/2 tsp Garlic Granules
      1/2 tsp Onion Granules
      1/2 tsp Sweet Paprika
      Salt & Pepper to taste

      Hope that helps! 🙂
