I made this lovely pasta bake just after I went to Wildes Cheeses last week and I topped it with the mozzarella I made that night. It was delicious.
Halloumi Pasta Bake (adapted from Happy Skinny Girl)
250g dried pasta
1 tbsp oil
1 small courgette, halved then cut into 1/2 cm slices
1 small red onion, thinly sliced
250g halloumi cheese, cut into 1 cm cubes
250g cherry tomatoes, halved
2 cloves garlic, crushed
400g can chopped tomatoes
150g mozzarella cheese
salt and pepper
Preheat the oven to 200C.
Cook the pasta according to instruction on the packet. Drain, and rinse in cold water, and set aside.
Heat 1/2 tbsp oil and add the courgette, fry for about 4 mins. Add the onion and garlic and cook for 1 min. Season with salt and pepper. Set it aside.
Heat the rest of the oil in the pan and add the halloumi until it is nicely browned, about 3 mins.
Mix the chopped tomatoes, courgettes, onion, halloumi and spinach with the pasta. Season salt and pepper. Put the pasta into an ovenproof dish and top with the mozzarella. Bake in the oven for about 15 mins until the cheese is golden and melted.
