Saturday Night Pepperoni Pizza Pasta Bake

The Easiest Cheesiest No Guilt Pasta Bake. I was originally planning this concoction for two but when it came out of the oven there is definitely enough for 4 servings with a side salad or 3 very generous sized servings! So I’m gonna go with serves 4 at approx 6pp each or on F&H this works out at approx 3pp if you use wholewheat pasta. Happy Days! Here’s the Skinny:  1/2 White Onion Finely Diced

1 Red Ramiro Pepper Finely Diced

2 Medium 50g Pepperoni Sausages Sliced

80g Fresh Light Mozzarella 

120g Uncooked Pasta Shapes 

Salt & Black Pepper 

1 Clove Garlic 

1 Tsp Dried Oregano 

1 Tsp Sweetener

Handful Fresh Basil Leaves Torn

500g Passatta  Cook the Pasta in a pot of boiling salted water for 10mins. Meanwhile lightly fry the onion & red pepper in sprayoil until soft (approx 5 mins). Crush the garlic clove into the pot & fry for a further 30 seconds. Add the Passatta, Oregano, Sweetener & Season well with salt and pepper. Simmer for about 5 minutes. Take off the heat & add the Pepperoni Slices, the Mozzarella ripped into small chunks (reserve some of both for the top) add in the basil leaves & mix well. Pour the pasta mix into an ovenproof bowl & smooth the top. Add the remaining Mozzarella & Pepperoni & season with black pepper. Bake in a preheated oven at 200c for approx 25 minutes or until cooked through. Keep an eye for the last 10 minutes and reduce heat to 180c if browning too much. Serve & enjoy!
