  • 400g penne or any tube pasta
  • 250g pack mozzarella grated
  • 50g Parmesan grated
  • 2 X 400g cans chopped tomatoes
  • 4 tbs chopped parsley
  • 3 tbs olive oil
  • Fresh basil chopped


  1. Cook the pasta for 6-8 mins

  2. Tip the tomatoes into a pan with parsley, olive oil and plenty of seasoning. Simmer for 15-20 mins until thickened and shiny. Heat oven to 180c/160c fan/gas 4

  3. Once the pasta has cooked drain well - but reserve a ladle of the pasta cooking water - tip back into the saucepan. Stir in the tomato sauce with a little of the water if it looks dry. Add 2/3s of the mozzarella and the basil, stir these in to before tipping into a baking dish

  4. Sprinkle the Parmesan over, along with the remaining mozzarella, then drizzle with a splash more oil. Bake for 20 mins until bubbling and the cheese has melted. Serve with green salad
