Kind of Mediterranean Pasta Bake

Mediterranean Pasta Bake
Serves 1

Leftover turkey and pasta sauce to use up! Pasta bake is a-calling! I tend to go through phases of eating pasta quite a lot and then don't use it again for weeks. No one said I'm normal :)

60g pasta e.g rigatoni
Olive oil
½ turkey or chicken breast, diced
50g smoked bacon lardons
½ clove garlic, chopped
½ stick celery, diced
Few olives, sliced
1 tsp capers
¼ jar tomato and basil pasta sauce
2 tsp parsley, chopped
1 tbsp grated Parmesan

Cook the pasta in boiling salted water for about 15 mins until tender.

Meanwhile fry the turkey or chicken, bacon and celery in frying pan for a few mins until cooked. Add the olives, capers, pasta sauce and parsley and simmer gently for 3-5 mins to heat through.

Mix with the drained pasta and transfer to an oven-proof dish. Sprinkle over cheese and cook under a grill until toasty and bubbling. Eat!
