    Delicious. I used tinned plum tomatoes for the sauce. Forgot to mix some of the sauce in with the pasta before layering (I just layered the pasta, sauce and cheese) but it was absolutely fine. Lovely flavours and textures, kind of lasagna-esque but without the meat.

    This is a great vegetarian recipe. I used the 3 cans of tinned tomatoes instead of the fresh tomatoes (I didn't have the time to do the fresh ones) I didn't bother to blend the tomato mixture in the food processor either, I like the chunkier texture. I used a combo of fresh bocconcini & mozzarella, not as much as what JO said to use, probably about half the amount and it was plenty. I really enjoyed the heat of the chillies and the rich flavour of the tomato sauce. A great week day meal with plenty of leftovers for lunch the next day !

    As is the dish is good. I think what is nice about it is the crunch from the baked cheese and shells and the tang of the sauce. You could add a bit of roasted garlic to the sauce, more chili, and more basil. In terms of upping the crunch you could do it in a single layer. Go a bit lighter on the mozzarella.
