We think our protein packed pasta goes perfectly with mushrooms and Parmesan. Sometimes you just need a simple meal that is high in nutritional value, but low on time spent slaving away in the kitchen! We are all about keeping things simple, so just like our pasta which has just three ingredients, we’ve tried to keep our recipes simple with just a few ingredients and steps to follow. We think the addition of lemon zest gives the dish an extra zing and adds a splash of color to the plate too. You could always add in your favorite herbs too such as thyme, or some delicious fresh flat-leaf parsley.

5. Then add the garlic to the mushrooms and continue to skip until the garlic is slightly browned. Be careful not to burn it as it will taste bitter!
