    Well done on 4lb loss :D

    I like fresh tom sauce with pasta (oven roasted tom, onion & garlic - when cooked blitz with black pepper & herbs & bit balsamic vinegar) top with 28g parmasan (HEX A)
    creamy mushroom & tomato sauce:

    198g/7oz closed cup mushrooms
    2 garlic cloves
    1 onion
    Fry Light
    400g can chopped tomatoes
    340g/12oz dried pasta shapes
    2-3 tbsp artificial sweetener
    6 tbsp freshly chopped basil
    150g pot fat-free natural fromage frais
    salt and freshly ground black pepper


    1. To make the sauce: slice the mushrooms; crush the garlic; finely chop the onion. Heat a frying pan sprayed with Fry Light, add the mushrooms, and stir-fry for 3-4 minutes. Add the garlic and onions and fry for 2-3 minutes. Pour over the chopped tomatoes, bring to the boil, reduce the heat and simmer gently for 10-12 minutes.
    2. While the sauce is simmering, cook the pasta according to the packet instructions, drain and keep warm.
    3. Stir the sweetener, basil and fromage frais into the sauce, season well and remove from the heat. Add the mushroom and tomato sauce to the pasta, toss together and serve.

    Ham & egg linguine:

    227g/8oz linguine or spaghetti
    Fry Light, for spraying
    4 large eggs
    1 level tbsp grated parmesan cheese, dried
    2 tbsps chopped parsley
    salt and freshly ground black pepper
    113g/4oz lean ham, diced


    1. Cook the pasta in a large saucepan of boiling lightly salted water for 6-12 minutes (follow the manufacturer''s instructions on the packet) until the pasta is cooked and tender but still a little firm. Stir occasionally while it is cooking to prevent the strands of pasta sticking together. Drain well.
    2. While the pasta is cooking, spray a frying pan with Fry Light and fry the eggs in batches until the whites are set but the yolks are still runny. Remove from the pan and keep warm.
    3. Toss the cooked pasta with the parmesan cheese and parsley and season with salt and pepper. Stir in the diced ham and divide between 4 serving plates. Top each serving with a fried egg and serve immediately.
