If you love pizza and pasta, why choose just one when you can have both? This pizza pasta is super quick and easy to make; the perfect no-fuss meal to feed the whole family. Combining the classic flavours of a pepperoni pizza stirred through pasta and baked in the oven with a golden bubbly cheese top. A great crowd pleaser!

Method

Preheat the oven to 200°C (fan l80°C/gas mark 6).

Cook the pasta according to the packet instructions, drain and leave to one side.

While your pasta is cooking, spray a large frying pan with low calorie cooking spray and fry the onion over a medium heat for 3-4 minutes until translucent. Add the peppers and garlic and continue to fry until the peppers are soft. Pour in the chopped tomatoes, passata, oregano and Worcestershire sauce and stir until combined.

Dice 30g of the pepperoni and add to the sauce along with the chopped basil. Season the sauce with salt and pepper to taste.

Tip the cooked pasta into an ovenproof dish, pour over the sauce and stir until the pasta is coated. Sprinkle the pasta with the mozzarella and Cheddar and add the remaining sliced pepperoni to the top of the pasta.

Bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes until the cheese is golden and bubbling and the pasta heated through. Once the pasta is cooked, sprinkle with the fresh basil leaves and serve.
