  • 230g asparagus
  • 250g fresh spaghetti
  • 180g hollandaise sauce
  • 180g Cooks’ Ingredients Pulled Ham Hock


  1. Snap off the woody ends of the asparagus, then slice the spears thinly on the diagonal.

  2. Boil 250g spaghetti according to pack instructions (the rest freezes brilliantly), then add the asparagus to the pasta with 1 minute of cooking time remaining. Drain, reserving a cup of pasta water, and return to the pan.

  3. Add the hollandaise, with a dash of pasta water, and gently toss over a low heat, until the sauce is heated through and creamy. Fold in the ham hock.

  4. Serve with a generous grind of black pepper.
