Annie Bell’s 20-minute pasta recipes

Annie Bell’s 20-minute recipes are as delicious as they are speedy.

Farfelle with spinach and dolcelatte

Pasta sauces don’t come greener than this, with pockets of silky melted blue cheese.

Anchovy, caper and chilli linguine

This answers the call of hunger after a night out or long day. It’s the ultimate pared-back pasta that is as feisty as it is minimal.

Rocket and lemon fusilli

I love this lemony sauce and, yes, this is a lot of rocket but it cooks down to nothing when wilted. Red lentil pasta is rich in protein and more nourishing than white, so you don’t need as much.

Pancetta carbonara

Carbonara is the ultimate 20-minute pasta and this is my new improved recipe – super creamy with extra egg yolks and lots of crispy pancetta.

Fresh tomato and basil penne

A sauce that cooks for just 1 minute? It sounds too good to be true but it is as fresh and lively as it is speedy.

One-pot macaroni cheese

This mac ’n’ cheese requires zero skill and just one pan. There is nothing to stop the indulgence of smothering it with even more cheese and popping it under the grill.

Seafood tagliatelle

This pasta saves on time with ready-prepared seafood, pepped up with chilli, olives and parsley.
