Creamy Pasta Shells with Mint hero 55c9e05b 8ec1 4a4b 95eb 7fef2c8bacfb 0 472x310

Boil the pasta in a large pan of water according to the pack instructions. Add the peas and broad beans (individually shelled, if preferred) to the pan and simmer for around 2 minutes.

Meanwhile put the crème fraîche and the vegetable stock in a small saucepan. Place over a gentle heat for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally and making sure it doesn't boil. Season, take off the heat and stir in the mint.

Drain the peas and pasta and return to the pan. Stir the crème fraiche sauce through the pasta and serve immediately.
