These little bakes nests of spaghetti are really simple but look very impressive when served up. Fill them with your favourite roasted veg or meats
- 175 g spaghetti
- 1 aubergine, cubed
- 1 courgette, sliced
- 1 red pepper, deseeded and sliced
- 6 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 garlic cloves, crushed
- 50 g melted butter
- 15 g white breadcrumbs
- Cook the spaghetti in boiling water for 8 - 10 mins so it still has some bite inches Drain and set aside.
- Mix the olive oil with the garlic.
- place the vegetables on a large tray and drizzle over the olive oil.
- Grill the veg for 10 mins until tender and lightly charred. Keep warm.
- divide the spaghetti among 4 greased tins. (I use a Yorkshire pudding pan) Curl round a fork to form nest shapes and brush with the melted butter and sprinkle with the breadcrumbs.
- bake the pasta nests for 15 mins at 200C/400F.
- Place a pasta nest on a serving plate and to with the grilled vegetables.
Noodles did not stick together, fell apart when it was taken out of muffin pan!
