Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 25 minutes
Serves: 4

Ingredients
400g spiral pasta (gluten free if required)
Salted water, boiled (reserve 1/4 cup pasta water)
1 tbsp olive oil
2 cloves of garlic, crushed (exclude for low FODMAP)
1 small onion, finely cut (exclude for low FODMAP)
500 g baby spinach
500 g mushrooms, sliced
1 lemon, finely zested and juiced 
2 large tomatoes, diced

Salt and pepper, to season
1 cup milk (lactose free if required)
1 tbsp cornflour
2 cups grated cheese (lactose free if required)

Method
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
Cook the pasta in salted boiling water for 2 minutes less than the packet instructions. Drain, reserving 1/4 cup of the pasta water, and set aside.
While the pasta is cooking, sauté the garlic in oil for 1 minute in a frypan on medium heat.  Add the onion and sauté until caramelised.
Add the mushrooms and sauté for 2 minutes until tender.
Add the spinach, lemon zest and juice and cook for 1 minute until wilted.

Add the diced and tin tomatoes, salt and pepper and stir to combine.
Heat the milk in a saucepan on medium heat. Add the cornflour when bubbles start to form around the edge, and stir continuously for 2 minutes until the sauce thickens. Add 1 cup cheese and stir until melted. Pour onto the tomato and spinach mixture and stir to combine.
