Using pre-cooked Singapore noodles in this meal is a quick alternative to spaghetti (and means you save on dishes too!). This recipe makes plenty of sauce – more than what you see in the photograph (it must have all drained to the bottom).

Ingredients

MEDITERRANEAN NOODLES

  • 400 g chicken frankfurters (14oz)
  • 2 large courgettes
  • 1 large red capsicum
  • 2 large tomatoes
  • 1 brown onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp chicken stock powder dissolved in 1 cup boiling water (250ml)
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 cup lite cream cheese (125ml)
  • 350 g pre-cooked Singapore noodles (12.3oz)
  • 100 g feta cheese (3.5oz)

Instructions

  1. PREP INGREDIENTS

    Slice frankfurters into 2cm pieces. Dice courgettes, capsicum and tomatoes. Slice onion. Crush garlic.

  2. COOK MEAL

    Heat olive oil in a large wok or frying pan over medium-high heat. Add frankfurters and cook for 3-5 minutes, until browned and heated through. Add the courgette, capsicum, tomato, onion and garlic and stir fry for approximately 3 minutes, until onion has softened.

  3. Add chicken stock and oregano and simmer for 2 minutes. Reduce heat to medium low and stir in cream cheese. Add noodles (breaking apart with your hands as you add them). Stir for a couple of minutes, until noodles are well distributed and heated through. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

  4. SERVE

    Divide noodles between individual serving bowls and crumble feta over the top.

Recipe Notes

WINE MATCH: Go for a Chardonnay.
GLUTEN-FREE OPTION: Make sure frankfurters are gluten-free. Use gluten-free chicken stock powder or cubes. Replace noodles with gluten-free spaghetti. You will need to boil this separately in a saucepan before adding to the wok. Start cooking it at the same time you start cooking the frankfurters.
INGREDIENT NOTES / SWAPS: I used Turk’s Smoked Chicken Frankfurters for this meal. If you can’t find chicken frankfurters, try regular frankfurters or diced chicken thighs instead. Singapore noodles can be replaced with spaghetti - see cooking instructions in the gluten-free option above.
STORING AND REHEATING: Store individual servings in airtight containers in the fridge. Reheat in the microwave.
