  • 12 large conchiglioni rigati pasta shells (cook a few extra in case any split)
  • 2 little gem lettuce
  • 50g mangetout
  • 200g cream cheese or vegan cream cheese*
  • 3 tbsp fresh coriander, chopped
  • 3 tbsp fresh flat leaf parsley, chopped
  • 2 spring onions, finely chopped (including some green)
  • 4 cocktail gherkins, finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1 lime, zest and juice
  • ½ cucumber, sliced
  • 5 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp mixed green fresh herbs, chopped

Method

  1. Cook the pasta shells for 10-15 minutes. Once the pasta is cooked, but still firm, drain and cool down quickly under cold water. Set the shells aside.
  2. Remove the larger of the little gem leaves and set these aside. Shred the remaining leaves. Make antennae for later by cutting two of the mangetout length ways (you need 24 slithers in total) and finely chop up the rest to go in the filling for the next step.
  3. Combine the cream cheese, coriander, parsley, spring onions, gherkins, chopped mangetout, garlic, lime and 3 tbsp of the shredded little gem leaves.
  4. Assemble the snails by stuffing the filling into the shells and place each one onto a slice of cucumber. Place each snail onto an individual little gem leaf. Add the mangetout antennas to the snails.
  5. Make the snail slime by whisking together the olive oil and herbs with a fork. Drizzle this over the snail and leave to make a slime trail.
  6. Serve on a big platter with any spare shredded lettuce, cucumber or slime in the middle of the plate for presentation. Guests should pick up a piece of lettuce, with a slimy snail on top, to eat!
