Baked feta & a trio of capsicum pasta




1.Preheat oven to 200°C/180°C fan.
2.Put capsicums into a small roasting dish. Trim root end of the base of garlic cloves and add to the dish, along with rosemary, water and olive oil. Season with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Top with feta. Bake for 30 minutes.
3.Bring a medium-sized pot of salted water to the boil. Cook pasta until al dente. Drain.
4.Remove roasting dish from oven. Holding each garlic clove by its tip, squeeze out soft flesh and mash it into capsicum along with the baked feta. Add pasta and parsley leaves, tossing gently to combine.

To avoid wastage, we used feta that is sold in a tub in brine. Use only the amount needed and return remaining brined feta to the refrigerator for later use. It can be used for a Greek salad or baked into a herb quiche or frittata.
