Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C, fan 180°C, gas mark 6. Cook the rigatoni pasta in a large pan of boiling water for 6-7 minutes (or 2 minutes less than pack instructions), then drain, reserving 250ml of the pasta cooking water.
  2. Meanwhile, combine the passata, basil, oregano and garlic in a large bowl, then season well and set aside. Roughly chop half the pepperoni and roughly tear half the mozzarella. Cut the remaining mozzarella into thin slices.
  3. Mist a nonstick frying pan with cooking spray and fry the mushrooms for 3-4 minutes, until golden. Remove from the heat and set aside.
  4. Add the cooked pasta to the sauce along with the reserved pasta water, mushrooms, chopped pepperoni and torn mozzarella. Stir to combine, then transfer the mixture to a 23cm square baking dish. Top with the remaining pepperoni and the sliced mozzarella and bake for 15-20 minutes, until golden and bubbling.
  5. Let stand for 5 minutes then scatter over the extra basil and serve with the salad on the side.
