    I found this only really served 3 people (and they weren't over generous portions) and was very lemoney so you may want to only use 1/2 lemon. If you left the lemon out alltogether and cooked some lemon chicken to go with it, it would make a great side dish and be brilliant with BBQ chicken or fish. It's a lovey dish for a hot summer night and very very quick to make. The recipe in the SW magazine only use 1 pot of fromage frais but we found it was far to dry, 2 pots were perfect.

    Serves 4 (3 really and there not over generous)

    12 oz of dried linguine or spaghetti
    2 garlic cloves crushed
    4 spring onions finely sliced
    28 green olives roughly chopped
    Zest of 1 lemon
    Fry light
    7oz frozen peas
    2 7oz pots of fat free natural fromage frais
    Salt and pepper
    Fresh basil leaves

    Cook pasta according to instructions, drain and set aside.
    Spray a pan with fry light and cook the garlic, spring onions, and peas for 3-4 mins.
    Stir in the pasta and olives and toss to mix well. Turn heat to high and cook for 2-3 mins until piping hot.
    Mix the lemon zest and basil into the fromage frais, season with salt and pepper and stir through the pasta mixing well. Serve.

    This sounds yummy, thanks.
    You could even add some left over cooked chicken if you are on EE.
