  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. 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!!!

  3. 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.

  4. 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

  5. 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 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! 🙂

  6. So yummy! I made a huge batch for lunches during the week. I added chickpeas because I’m low on iron, tastes wonderful. When I’m feeling particularly naughty I garnish with my HeA cheese portion 🙂
    Thanks pinchofnom
