  • 250g halloumi (original, light or chilli depending on preference)
  • 2 red peppers
  • 2-3 tablespoons of vegetarian pesto (no parmesan)
  • 150-200g of spaghetti
  • 60g rocket
  • olive oil
  • vegetarian hard cheese


    1. Pre-heat over to 200C. Wash the peppers, remove the seeds etc and cut into slices. Coat in olive oil and put into oven for 15-20minutes (turning halfway through) until soft
    2. Slice halloumi into thick chunks (about 6 slices if using a normal supermarket pack) and add to oven 5 minutes after peppers have gone in (turn halfway through)
    3. Cook pasta according to directions on packet, drain and stir in the pesto
    4. Put spaghetti onto plates, share peppers and halloumi between the plates, sprinkle rocket on top and grate over with the vegetarian hard cheese (as close to parmesan as you can get)

This was really good. I used chilli pesto and didn't have rocket so used torn basil leaves. Added a courgette to the peppers while roasting. Versatile recipe.
