    About this recipe: A creamy and definitely Italian way of combining some of Italy's best known flavours - oregano, basil, tomato and, of course, mozzarella, in a very easy and quick middle-of-the-week dish.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 2 

    • 200g spaghetoni

    1. Boil the pasta in salted water until almost al dente.
    2. Drain the water and return the pasta to the pan, drizzling it with a splash of olive oil.
    3. Add half of the sauce to the pasta and mix well, coating it thoroughly.
    4. Form a nest and place the mozzarella in the centre. Take to the microwave for 3-4 minutes.
    5. Take it out of the microwave and coat with the remaining sauce.
    6. Serve decorated with the halves of the olives.

    Notes

    Spaghettoni has a broader diameter than regular spaghetti. In a pinch, regular spaghetti can be used. Instead of Napolitana sauce, your favourite tomato-based pasta sauce can be used.
