Introduction

I am fortunate to have children who eat everything (I thank me alone for this) but, there are many who eat not much at all. I developed this from my store cupboard one night when I was taking care of my nephews, who, when asked what they would like for dinner chimed perfectly together "chicken nuggets please". I knew that if I served some sort of protein and three veg, there would be protests. So I incorporated the vegetables thanks to a grater and the power of camoflague. My nephews loved the pasta and had no idea what was in it. This is fast, tasty midweek food.

  • Put the water on to boil and proceed to cook pasta.
  • Grate the courgettes and gently fry in a pan till soft, add cherry tomatoes (which I have quartered) and they will cook down and meld into the courgettes.
  • Add the whole tin of salmon, skin, bones, juice and all. Obviously breaking up the flesh of the fish to mix with the other ingredients. Season to taste.
  • Mix this together with the cooked pasta and throw in a handful of mozzarella cheese. Put into an oven proof dish.
  • Sprinkle the top generously with grated mozzarella. parmesan and breadcrumbs.
  • Bake until you have it looking golden brown with a satisfying crunch on top.
