Ratatouille-stuffed giant pasta shells
Serves 4 Syns per serving 6 Deduct 6 Syns if using the mozzarella as a Healthy Extra Ready in 2 hours
16 dried giant pasta shells
160g ready-grated mozzarella
Fresh basil leaves, to serve
For the roasted veg:
2 red onions, each sliced into 6 wedges
4 garlic doves, peeled
3 red peppers, deseeded and each cut into 6 slices
3 courgettes, sliced diagonally into 2cm pieces
250g mushrooms, halved
6 large tomatoes, quartered
2 sprigs of fresh rosemary
Low-calorie cooking spray
For the tomato sauce:
1 red onion, finely chopped
3 garlic cloves, crushed
1 level tbsp mushroom ketchup (optional)
1 Preheat your oven to 200°C/fan 180°C/gas 6. Spread all the roasting veg on 1 or 2 non-stick baking trays in a single layer. Add the rosemary, spray with low-calorie cooking spray and season. Roast for 50 minutes, then leave to cool until needed.
2 While the veg are cooling, cook the pasta for 3 minutes less than the pack instructions. Drain, run under cold water to cool completely, then set aside in a sieve.
For the sauce, spray a medium saucepan with low-calorie cooking spray and place over a medium heat. Add the onion and garlic with a splash of water, and cook gently for 5-10 minutes, stirring frequently. Add the mushroom ketchup (if using) and passata, and simmer for 10 minutes over a low heat. Season to taste.
3 Fill the shells with the cooled veg, then stir the leftover veg into the sauce with half the mozzarella. Pour the sauce into a 2-litre ovenproof dish, then arrange the shells on top in 2 circles. Scatter over the remaining mozzarella and bake for 25-30 minutes.
Scatter the basil over the bake, then divide between 4 plates, discarding the rosemary before eating.
