• 300 g fusilli
  • 1 small clove of garlic
  • 1 sprig of fresh mint
  • 2 medium courgettes
  • 1 small knob of unsalted butter
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 150 ml British crème fraîche
  • 30 g fresh parmesan, grated


  1. 1

    Bring a pan of water to the boil. Cook the fusilli according to pack instructions.

  2. 2

    Meanwhile, give the garlic to your toddler and ask them to peel the clove and then put it in a garlic crusher. You will probably need to help crush it.

  3. 3

    Ask your toddler to help pick 4 mint leaves off the sprig. You can then finely chop the leaves and set them aside.

  4. 4

    Trim and grate the courgettes – you’ll probably need to do this step yourself.

  5. 5

    Heat the butter and oil in a heavy-based frying pan, add the grated courgettes and fry for about 2 mins. Add the garlic and mint, and fry for another 2 mins.

  6. 6

    Add the crème fraîche and season with a little freshly ground black pepper. Stir until well combined, then let the sauce bubble in the pan for a few mins. Stir in the grated parmesan then spoon the mixture over the cooked, drained fusilli.

  7. 7

    Toss everything together and serve immediately – you might want to add more seasoning to the adults’ pasta.
