This is a real comfort food dish! It will make you go back for more. A fave in my family and im sure once you make it then it will be in yours. Its a no fuss recipe and so easy but so tasty.
1 pack of mediterranean vegetables
Handfull of mushrooms, halved
Handfull of fresh basil, chopped
Handful of cherry tomatoes
3 garlic gloves, chopped
1 tub of mascarpone cheese
3oz dried fusilli pasta
Pack of feta cheese
Pinch of paprika
Pre-heat oven to 200c (gar mark 6).
This meal really is no fuss and doesn’t take much time at all so get the pasta into salted boiling water straight away.
Next add a glug of oil to a pan over a medium heat along with the garlic and fry for 2-3 minutes, next add the mascarpone, and 2-3 ladles of the starchy pasta water, stir well until the mascarpone has melted and you have a nice sauce then finish off with a pinch of paprika (optional), stir in the basil and never forget to check the seasoning as you might need quite a bit of salt to bring the flavours of the veg out.
In a large mixing bowl mix together the veg, cooked drained pasta, sauce and crumble in half the feta, pour all this into a large baking tray and top with the rest of the feta.
Cover with foil and into the oven for 30 minutes, then remove the foil and cook for a further 10 minutes to brown the cheese.
Enjoy this with a nice slice of garlic bread or i like a nice chunk of bread and butter.
