Move over, macaroni. Ear-shaped orecchiette is the perfect pasta for cradling tonight's creamy, two-cheese pasta sauce - complete with a drizzle of truffle oil for a mushroomy depth of flavour. Complete the dish with steamed green veggies for some colour, crunch and to cut through the richness.

• Bring a large saucepan of salted water to the boil. Cook orecchiette in the boiling water until 'al dente', 8 minutes. • Meanwhile, chop broccoli (including the stalk!) into small florets. • When the pasta has 5 minutes remaining, place a colander (or steamer basket) on top of the saucepan. Add broccoli to the colander, then cover with a lid and steam until tender, 5 minutes. • Reserve some pasta water (1/4 cup for 2 people / 1/2 cup for 4 people). Add baby spinach leaves to colander. Drain pasta over veggies. Set aside.

TIP: Draining the pasta over the veggies is an easy way to wilt the spinach!


• Finely chop garlic. • In a large frying pan, heat a good drizzle of olive oil over medium-high heat. • Cook panko breadcrumbs (see ingredients) and 1/2 the garlic, stirring, until golden brown, 3-4 minutes. • Transfer pangrattato to a bowl. Add chilli flakes (if using). Season with salt and pepper to taste.


• Return frying pan to medium-low heat with the butter. • Cook remaining garlic until fragrant, 1 minute. Add light cooking cream, garlic & herb seasoning and reserved pasta water. Cook, stirring, until slightly reduced, 1-2 minutes. • Add shredded Cheddar cheese and grated Parmesan cheese and cook, stirring, until combined, 30 seconds. Remove from heat. • Stir veggies and pasta through the sauce until combined. Season to taste.


• Stir a drizzle of truffle oil (if using) through the pasta. • Divide cheesy truffle mac and cheese between bowls. Top with the garlic-chilli pangrattato. Garnish with an extra pinch of chilli flakes (if using) to serve. Enjoy!

TIP: Truffle oil has a strong flavour, so add less or leave it out if desired!
