Pasta Bakes – By Natalia Oparka


It goes without saying that we all struggle with time management. Although we are incredibly busy, we seem to sleep less, relax less and, – yes – unfortunately, cook less. To make life a little bit easier, this month we’ve picked one pasta recipe that is easy and budget-friendly.

Fusilli with tomato sauce:

Servings: 2


 350 g fusilli pasta (any kind of pasta will do, go for your favourite)

 1 can chopped tomatoes (around 400 g)

 2 onions

 2 cloves garlic

 60 g yellow cheese

 1 tablespoon lemon juice

 3 tablespoons cubed chives

 salt, pepper, basil oregano, red pepper


1. Cook the pasta in salted water. Strain the pasta.

2. Saute the onions and garlic (with a little bit of oil). Add the tomatoes, lemon juice and the spices.

3. Add the pasta and cook it for around 5 min. When ready, place it in a flameproof

dish and add grated yellow cheese on top.

4. Put inside the oven for 10 min. (200º C)

5. As a final touch, sprinkle the pasta with cubed chives.
