Garlic and Herb Tagliatelle

I'm not really sure about this dish. It was ok, nothing too exciting but it filled a hole! I used a soft cheese with herbs and garlic and used grated courgette as I am trying to use up the stuff in the freezer. I also added asparagus and served it with a mixed leaf salad with balsamic vinegar.

Garlic and Herb Tagliatelle (from
(Serves 1)
(7 WW ProPoints per serving)

60g dried tagliatelle
cooking spray
1 clove garlic, crushed
100g courgette, sliced into ribbons with a peeler
50g low fat soft cheese
black pepper to season

Cook the tagliatelle in a pan of boiling water for 8-10 minutes or until the pasta is cooked but still with some bite.

Meanwhile, mist a separate pan with calorie controlled cooking spray and add the garlic and courgette. Fry, stirring, for 2-3 minutes, until the courgette has softened. 
Add the drained pasta to the courgettes with the soft cheese and stir until the cheese has melted and the pasta is coated.
