How to:

  • In a saucepan, mix together the Formula 1 Savoury Shake Mix and cornflour, then mix in four tablespoons of the milk.
  • Stir in the remaining milk gradually, continuing to stir, then add the zest and juice of the lemon, as well as 40ml water.
  • Season with pepper and cook on medium heat, stirring constantly for one to three minutes, until thickened, smooth and hot.
  • In the meantime, put the penne in a separate saucepan and cook for 10-12 mins or until cooked to your liking. Drain then add to the pasta sauce. Mix through the crème Fraiche and parsley, then serve immediately, sprinkled with more pepper.
