Recipe tip

COOK. STORE. SAVE.
Smart swap
Got another jar of red pasta sauce in the cupboard? Use it instead of the arrabbiata sauce in this recipe for a flavour twist.

Smart swap
Got an eggplant that needs using up? Use it instead of the zucchini in this recipe. Whatever cheese you have on hand will work in this dish, too – parmesan, mozzarella or even blue cheese are all great to add to tray bakes such as this one.
