Chef Lizzie’s delicious halloumi pasta bake is a quick and easy recipe, perfect for any night of the week. For maximum flavour, courgettes, peppers, sweet onions and halloumi are roasted together before being added to the pasta and stirred through with sundried tomatoes, fresh basil and a rich tomato sauce. Finish everything off by covering the pasta mix with cheese, and baking it until the top looks golden and bubbly.
