This delicious dinner is ready in minutes and combines juicy tomatoes, spinach, and fiery chilli, with tagliatelle pasta and a creamy sauce.

  1. In a frying pan, heat the oil over a low heat. Add the garlic and chilli and cook for 3 minutes, or until softened. Add the tomatoes and spinach; season. Cover the pan, turn the heat to high, and cook for 7-9 minutes, until the spinach has defrosted. Meanwhile, cook the pasta in boiling water following packet instructions. Drain, reserving 150ml (1/4pt) of cooking water.
  2. Remove the frying pan from the heat and stir in the cream cheese. Add the pasta to the pan with a splash of cooking water; this will give you a glossy sauce.
  3. Toss the pasta with the sauce, adding the reserved water to loosen it. Season to taste and serve with a green salad on the side, if you like.
