Asparagus and Lemon Spaghetti with Peas
150g wholemeal spaghetti
160g asparagus, , ends trimmed and cut into lengths

2 leeks (220g), cut into lengths, then thin strips
1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
1 garlic clove, finely grated
160g frozen peas

Boil the spaghetti for 12 mins until al dente, adding the asparagus for the last 3 mins.
Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan, add the leeks and chilli and cook for 5 mins. Stir in the garlic, peas and lemon zest and juice and cook for a few mins more.
