Method

  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C.
  2. Bring a large pan of water to the boil, add the spaghetti and cook for 8-10 mins until just tender but not completely cooked. Reserve a 300ml of pasta cooking water, drain and set aside.
  3. While the pasta is cooking, heat the oil in a separate pan and fry the onion and garlic together for 4-5 mins until beginning to go translucent.
  4. Add the dried herbs, carrot and courgette and cook for another 5 mins. Season with salt and black pepper and add the reserve pasta cooking water and the chopped tomatoes. Stir well and add the cooked pasta to the sauce.
  5. Tip the mixture into an oven-safe dish and lay the sliced halloumi over the top. Bake for 18-22 mins until the halloumi is golden brown and the sauce bubbling. Serve with the salad.

Tip: If not needing the pasta bake to be vegetarian, try adding the other 100g pack bacon lardons and a pinch of chilli flakes for an Amatriciana-style pasta bake.
