  • 400 g macaroni/penne pasta
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 125 ml water
  • 1 tsp mustard
  • 5 tbsp Philadelphia Light with Chives
  • 2 tsp chopped fresh chives
  • 150 g frozen peas
  • 60 g finely grated cheddar cheese
  • salt and black pepper


  • Preheat the oven to 200 °C/fan 190 °C/gas mark 6.
  • Cook the penne in boiling salted water according to packet instructions. About two minutes before it's ready add the frozen peas and allow to cook for 1-2 minutes. Drain, reserving a ladleful of the cooking water, then toss the pasta and peas in one teaspoon of olive oil and plenty of seasoning, then set aside.
  • On a low heat in the same pan whisk the Philadelphia Chives, mustard and reserved pasta water together until fully incorporated. Simmer gently for two to three minutes until the sauce has thickened slightly, adding a little more salt and black pepper to taste.
  • Stir the pasta, peas and chopped chives through the sauce. Tip into a large baking dish, sprinkle with grated cheddar cheese and bake for 15-20 minutes until the cheese is golden and the sauce is bubbling. Serve with plenty of green salad on the side.
