One Pot Creamy Veg Spaghetti in 20 Minutes

You know when you have been busy all day and you really cant be bothered to cook anything (or wash any pots later on in the evening?) this is perfect for those situations! less than 5 minutes to prep...less than 15 minutes to cook and less than 5 minutes to wash up AND if your lucky the hubs or tween might offer to wash for you seeing as there is only 1 pan!

What you need (this served 3 adult portions, 2 toddler portions and a baby portion with loads spare!)

1 pack spaghetti 
2 courgette's (sliced and cut into quarters)
1 cup of peas
2 cloves garlic (sliced thinly)
1 good sprinkle of dried herbs
4 1/2 cups of cold water
2 handfuls of grated Cheese
1 small tub double cream

Pop your spaghetti, courgette's, peas, garlic, herbs and water in a large pan.
Bring to the boil, then reduce to a simmer until the pasta is cooked and the water has reduced (aroound 8-10 minutes)
Stir in the cheese and cream.
