Cook the pasta in the same water according to the packet instructions. While the pasta is cooking, mash the broccoli with a fork or potato masher and then add the garlic, chilli, cream and season well with salt and pepper.

When the pasta is cooked, drain well and mix through the pasta with a tbsp of extra virgin olive oil. Crumble over the feta and Biltong over the pasta and serve immediately.

Top Tip: You may want more than 35g of Biltong, as it is so tasty I was eating it throughout cooking and didn’t have enough on my plate.
