Fiorentina baked pasta
- Preparation and cooking time
- Serves 4
A quick and creamy pasta bake that can be reheated for lunch the next day - if you manage to have any left!
- STEP 1
Boil the pasta for 10 mins, drain, then tip back into the pan. Meanwhile, heat grill to medium. Heat the oil in a large frying pan, add the mushrooms, then cook over a high heat for 5 mins until lightly golden. Reduce the heat, add the garlic, then fry for another min until softened. Season and spoon into a large, shallow baking dish.
- STEP 2
Tip the spinach sauce and half the cheese into the pasta, then put back on the heat for a few mins until heated through. Season to taste, then spoon the pasta over the mushrooms in an even layer. Scatter the remaining cheese over the top and grill for about 5 mins until the cheese is golden and the sauce is bubbling.
MAKE YOUR OWN SAUCE
To make your own spinach and cheese sauce, simply defrost, drain and chop two good handfuls frozen spinach and mix with a 250g tub mascarpone and a handful grated parmesan cheese.
