A healthy pasta dish from Dr Eva Orsmond!



  • 250 g fresh spinach
  • 150 g broccoli, chopped
  • 100 g ricotta cheese
  • 75 g (dry weight) penne pasta or your preferred pasta
  • 1 vegetable stock cube
  • 15 ml soy sauce
  • black pepper
  • shavings of parmesan cheese



  • Bring water to the boil in a pot and cook the pasta according to the instructions on the packet. Be careful not to over cook as it should be "al dente".
  • If you have a steamer, place it over the boiling pasta, and place the broccoli and spinach in to cook in the steam for 5 minutes. Otherwise, boil some water in a pot and add the vegetable stock cube and place the washed spinach and broccoli into it and cook for 5 minutes.
  • When the pasta is cooked, strain and place in your serving bowl.
  • Strain the cooked spinach and broccoli and place in a separate bowl.
  • Mix together the spinach, broccoli, ricotta cheese and soy sauce with a fork, and for spinach leaves break them in smaller pieces with kitchen scissors.
  • Place the mix over your pasta in your serving dish. Sprinkle a few shavings of parmesan cheese and black pepper and serve.
