  • 200 grams macaroni pasta 1 and 1/2 cups
  • 400 grams tinned chopped tomatoes 14 ounces
  • 10 cherry tomatoes - halved
  • 1 medium white onion - sliced
  • 1 medium red onion - sliced
  • 250 grams passata 1 cup
  • 80 millilitres water 1/3 cup
  • 3 tablespoons fresh basil - chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh flat-leafed parsley - chopped
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon garlic granules
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 65 grams baby spinach leaves 2 and 1/4 ounces
  • 130 grams mozzarella cut into strips 4 and 1/4 ounces
  • 60 grams grated mature cheddar 1 cup


  • Preheat your oven to 200C/400F/Gas mark 6 and lightly grease a large ovenproof dish, then place to one side.
  • In a medium-sized mixing bowl add in the pasta, tinned tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, sliced onion, passata, water, herbs, seasoning and baby spinach leaves and gently mix everything together.
  • Pour half of this mix into your ovenproof dish.
  • Sprinkle half of your sliced mozzarella over the mix then cover with the remaining pasta mixture.
  • Sprinkle the remaining mozzarella and the cheddar over the top and cover with tin foil.
  • Pop this into your hot oven for 30 minutes.
  • After this time remove the foil and continue cooking for a further 10 - 15 minutes. You are looking for the cheese to start to turn golden and most of the liquid to have been absorbed by the pasta.
  • Take your dish out of the oven and serve.
  • Any left-overs can be stored in the fridge once cool and must be eaten within 3 days. Reheat in a microwave for a few minutes or enjoy cold.
