It’s great to have Ben and Julia from Rethink Cooking back at the farm, scouring the fields and farm shop to create delicious, inspiring and low waste meals from our seasonal produce.


2 servings pasta of your choice

150g king prawns, fresh or frozen

150g asparagus, chopped

Juice of 1 lemon

50g parmesan cheese/grana padano cheese
