I love this time of year when there are so many fruits and vegetables in season. This Syn Free Summer Veg Spaghetti is quick and simple and makes the most of some delicious, fresh (and some speedy!) vegetables!
For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb 👍
This recipe uses rainbow chard. I hadn’t tried it until recently because I thought it was like spinach which I’m not too keen on.
Saw some rainbow chard reduced in the “Whoops” and thought I’d give it a go! It’s much nicer than spinach and the colours of the stems on each leaf are sooooo pretty!
I’ve used peas, asparagus and rainbow chard in this recipe but you can really use any green vegetable. I’d recommend using something you haven’t tried before!
This Syn Free Summer Veg Spaghetti recipe is easily adaptable for more or less people if required – cook less pasta, add more veg…it’s up to you!
I like to serve with a tiny grate of Parmesan but remember to Syn the cheese accordingly.
Whenever we need to replace oil in cooking we use Frylight. Perfect for everyday frying and cooking, it delivers exactly one calorie per spray, which makes it Syn free! The Rapeseed or Olive Oil flavours are ideal for this Syn Free Summer Veg Spaghetti recipe.

Bring a large pan of water to the boil. Once boiling, place the spaghetti in
Chop the rainbow chard and asparagus into 2cm pieces. Once the spaghetti has been cooking for 4 minutes, add all the veg in with the pasta. Cook for a further 5 minutes
Set aside 3 tbsp of the water from the spaghetti and vegetables. Drain and leave in the colander
Spray the saucepan with some Frylight and cook the crushed garlic on a moderate heat for a minute or two, being careful not to burn it
Turn off the heat and remove the pan from the hob. Return the spaghetti and vegetables to the saucepan with the held back cooking water and stir in the quark and lemon juice. Season well with salt and pepper. Do not try to do this on the heat as the quark will split
Serve immediately (with a sprinkle of parmesan if you like, but don't forget to Syn it or use it part of your HEA)
