Some days, you just can’t decide whether you want pizza or pasta. Luckily with this cheesy pepperoni pasta bake, you won’t have to! You’ll coat pasta in rich red pepper and tomato sauce, two types of cheese and spicy pepperoni before baking ‘til gorgeously gooey and golden. It’s pizza perfection!

Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Cheesy Pepperoni Pasta Bake

Preheat the oven to 240ºC/ 220ºC (fan)/ 475ºF/ Gas 9

Boil a kettle

Peel and finely slice the red onion[s]

Deseed the red pepper[s] (scrape the seeds and pith out with a teaspoon) and cut into thin strips

2 Cheesy Pepperoni Pasta Bake

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a drizzle of olive oil over a medium heat

Once hot, add the sliced onion and pepper with a pinch of salt and cook for 5-6 min or until starting to soften

3 Cheesy Pepperoni Pasta Bake

While the onion and pepper are cooking, add the tortiglioni to a pot of boiled water with a pinch of salt, bring to the boil over a high heat and cook for 8-12 min or until cooked with a slight bite

Once cooked, drain

Re-boil the kettle

 

4 Cheesy Pepperoni Pasta Bake

Slice the cherry tomatoes in half

Dissolve the tomato paste and Knorr chicken stock cube[s] in 200ml [350ml] boiled water – this is your tomato stock

5 Cheesy Pepperoni Pasta Bake

Once the onion and pepper has softened, add the tomato stock to the pan with the sliced cherry tomatoes and dried oregano and cook for 2-3 min or until thickened

Once thickened, stir the cooked tortiglioni through the tomato sauce and season generously with black pepper

6 Cheesy Pepperoni Pasta Bake

Meanwhile, grate the cheddar cheese 

Drain and tear the mozzarella into bite-sized pieces

7 Cheesy Pepperoni Pasta Bake

Transfer the pasta to an oven-proof dish and top with the grated cheddar and torn mozzarella

Lay the pepperoni slices over the top then put the dish in the oven for 15-20 min or until golden on top – this is your cheesy pepperoni pasta bake

While the oven works its magic, roughly tear the basil leaves
