Busy day? Rushing home? Here’s a 10 Minute Meal that’s quick, easy and healthy, and only requires five basic ingredients and one pot. It doesn’t get much better than that!

10 Minute Meal ingredients

Fresh fettucine, 1 pack of 375 grams, a little olive oil, 1 tub of herb and garlic cream cheese, 250 grams washed baby spinach, and 1 can of salmon 410 grams (or tuna, whatever you like best).

How to make this 10 Minute Meal

First of all, bring a large pot of water to the boil. Then, drop in the fettucine and cook for around 3 minutes, or until al dente, as per your preference. Next, drain the water. Toss the pasta with a little olive oil. After that, place the cream cheese on top of the pasta, and place spinach on top of that as well. Just for good measure, add 2 tbs. of water and stir. Now, put the lid on pot and set on lowest heat possible.

Meanwhile, clean the can of salmon by draining the liquid, and removing dark skin and bones. However, if using tuna, just drain the liquid. Use a fork to cut the canned fish into smaller pieces, but don’t mash it. Mix the fish through the pasta. By now, your spinach will have wilted and the cream cheese will have melted. Stir everything through well, and use some salt and pepper to finish off.

There you go, your 10 Minute Meal is now ready to be enjoyed!

You can make it more fancy by adding some cut smoked salmon through the pasta as well, or using more tuna (add an extra can).
