  • 240g gluten free penne pasta
  • 300ml single cream
  • 300g mixed vegetables
  • 225g halloumi
  • spinach mine was frozen


  1. Boil water in the pan and add the pasta until cooked.

  2. Soften the veg. If using frozen vegetables, soften them in boiling water for around 5 mins.

  3. Drain the pasta and the vegetables.

  4. Slice the halloumi into cubes of around 1 cm.

  5. Lightly fry the halloumi. You don't need oil. Doesn't have to be fried to perfection as it will get brown in the oven.

  6. Pre-heat the oven to around 180°C/Gas Mark 4

  7. Place the pasta and the vegetables in an ovenproof dish. Pour over the cream.

  8. Place the halloumi on top of the pasta. Drizzle olive oil, salt and oregano.

  9. Bake in oven for around 20 to 25 mins until the halloumi and pasta are golden. Remember to keep and eye on the halloumi as it will go golden quite quickly, and turn it over so it's cooked on both sides.

Recipe Notes

If you don't want to use single cream, you could use a pasta sauce, pesto or even a tomato sauce!
