Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6 and boil the pasta following pack instructions. Meanwhile, tip the pesto, chilli, tomatoes and paprika into a large ovenproof dish. Shake 3 tbsp water in the closed pesto jar to get out the last bits, then pour into the dish and stir everything together. Drain the pasta, tip into the dish, season and mix well with half the Parmesan.
  2. Scatter over the goat’s cheese, followed by the remaining Parmesan, then bake for 15-20 mins until piping hot and the cheese has melted.

Fantastic, especially with chunks of frazzled chorizo for a non-veggie version. I always finish mine with a handful of breadcrumbs under the last bit of parmesan too, for extra crunch.

This dish is absolutely delicious. The whole family loved it (toddler included). Will definitely make regularly.

This is a really good recipe. I swapped the cherry tomatoes for a tin of chopped tomatoes and only used 320g of pasta (but still had enough for five people).

Made this with chilli pesto (so omitted the chillies) and added some sundried tomatoes.
The goat's cheese gives it such a delicious taste.... Will definitely be making this again ♥

Made this for veggie dinner party - delicious. Used mozarella instead of goat's cheese and that worked well too. Great that you can prepare in advance and just bung in the oven when needed.

Really tasty, would use less pasta next time, maybe 300g would be enough.
