Green pasta and pesto souffle (gratin)

The easiest way to enjoy delicious pasta with a little cheese oven-baked, without too much work. Our favorite comfort food and little snack. Just boil some green pasta (ours were penne with 25% zucchini and spinach), put them in heat proof bowls, mix with a little green pesto from the jar and grated emmentaler cheese and whatever else tickles your fancy (like our pickled mustard, for instance) and place it in the oven :).

Ingredients (serves 2):
  • 100 g green pasta (we used mini-penne for faster boil)
  • 100 g grated emmentaler cheese
  • 4 large tablespoons green pesto from the jar
  • a little pepper
  • 1 tablespoon pickled mustard (recipe here)

Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Boil the pasta:

Drain it and put it into heatproof bowls:

Add the pesto:

Also add the cheese (reserving 3 tablespoons of it) and mix well:

Add the mustard (or other pickles, about 1 teaspoon):

Mix again and then top with the remaining cheese:

Place in the oven and bake for 10-15 minutes. Take out and dig in! :)
