  • Ready in: 30-60 Minutes
  • Syns per serving:
  • suitable for vegetarians


  • 1lb (16oz) dry penne or rigatoni
  • Low-calorie cooking spray
  • 2 leeks, trimmed and sliced
  • 2 zucchini, sliced
  • 1½ cups (4oz) mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 cup (2oz) sun-dried tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp chopped parsley
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Freshly chopped parsley, for garnish


  • 2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1¼ cups skim milk
  • ½ cup fat-free plain yogurt
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • pinch of grated nutmeg
  • ½ cup (2oz) reduced-fat Cheddar cheese, shredded


  1. Cook the pasta following the package directions and drain. Meanwhile, spray a large skillet with low-calorie cooking spray and cook the leeks, zucchini, and mushrooms over low heat for 8–10 minutes, until softened. Stir in the sun-dried tomatoes and remove from the heat.
  2. Make the sauce. Blend the cornstarch with a little milk. Heat the remaining milk and bring to a boil. Stir in the cornstarch mixture and cook for 1–2 minutes, stirring until thickened.
  3. Remove the sauce from the heat and stir in the yogurt, mustard, and nutmeg with a wooden spoon. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Stir most of the grated cheese into the sauce, reserving a little for the topping. Put the vegetables and pasta into a heatproof dish and pour the sauce over the top. Sprinkle with the rest of the cheese.
  5. Bake in a preheated oven at 350°F for 20–30 minutes, until crisp and golden. Sprinkle with parsley and serve immediately.
