but here's the recipe for anyone who wants to have a go...
- 1 egg
- 100g wholemeal plain flour
- fresh spinach (or defrosted frozen spinach)
- 100g low fat cottage cheese
- 50g grated mozzarella cheese
- garlic clove
- pinch of nutmeg
- salt and pepper
Roll out dough with rolling pin, (or if you got one use a fancy pasta making roller contraptions) when the dough is papery and thin, divide and cut out squares. Place spoonfuls of the spinach cheese mix in to the centre of half of the squares. with your finger wet the squares around the sides and place another piece on each. pinch around the edges. Once you get into the swing of it you get a sort of factory line going and its pretty quick to make.

Bring a pan of water to a rolling boil and careful submerge each parcel into the water. cook for 5 minutes.
To serve drizzle with oilive oil, balsamic vinegar and top with an extra sprinkle of cheese. we had ours with roasted baby plum tomatoes and a rocket salad.
This was deliciously light, tangy and fluffy and did not taste like a 'healthied' dessert in the slightest.
- 2 egg whites
- 50g non fat cream cheese
- juice and peel of one lemon
- table spoon of icing sugar.
- 3 digestive biscuits
- teaspoon of melted light butter
Crush biscuits and add melted butter. divided crumbs into two dessert bowls. top with creamy lemmon mixture. place int he fridge to chill for at least 2 hours.
It doesnt set quite like the calorific verison but its just as dreamy and guilt free!

could make it even lighter with a less calorific biscuit base.
