Well, the viral tik tik pasta video that takes a block of feta cherry tomatoes, a few herbs, garlic and olive oil, roasted, mashed and pasta mixed through is a firm favourite in our house.
The free nature of the recipe allows lots of scope for personalized variants.We have found fresh homegrown is the secret here. Mixed colour cherry tomatoes, fresh onions, chilli flakes, just a few (would not be a Neil dish without) as it is not heat you want, the chilli should lift the brightness of the tomatoes. No garlic as I am allergic. Fresh oregano. Food snob cows cheese, olive oil and black pepper. Bake at 200 till roasted enough. (Throw is some truss tomatoes for topping)(forget the photo of this stage)
For us it was Gluten free Pasta Spirals (Kerry is Gluten free.. not by choice) which is mixed into the mashed roasted feta and tomatoes.
Dressed with roasted truss tomatoes and a sprinkling of basil and parsley. Shisito peppers coated in olive and salt, lightly blistered in a pan adds the Neil part of the dish.
