  • 1lb (16oz) dry penne or rigatoni
  • Low-calorie cooking spray
  • 2 leeks, trimmed and sliced

  • 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.
