Pasta and Mushrooms Baked with Two Cheeses

Stilton cheese is marvellous for cooking, and gives a very distinctive flavour to the mushroom sauce in this pasta dish. Mozzarella, used here for the topping, is a famous Italian cheese, which is now also being made in Britain. It is deliciously creamy when melted.

Ingredients
 

  • 8 oz ribbon noodles
  • 1 oz butter
  • 1 garlic clove skinned and crushed
  • 8 oz mushrooms thinly sliced
  • 2 oz Stilton cheese
  • 4 tbsp fresh double cream
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • 4 oz mozzarella cheese

Instructions

  • Cook the noodles in boiling salted water for about 7 minutes, until just tender.
  • Meanwhile, melt the butter in a large frying pan and cook the garlic and mushrooms, stirring frequently, until just softened. Crumble in the Stilton cheese and cook for a couple of minutes, stirring continuously. Stir in the cream and season to taste.
  • Drain the pasta and season with lots of pepper. Mix into the mushroom sauce. Stir in the egg and mix together thoroughly.
  • Turn the mixture into a buttered ovenproof dish and grate the mozzarella on top. Cover with foil and bake at 180°C (350°F) mark 4 for 10 minutes, then remove the foil and bake at 220°C (425°F) mark 7 for a further 10 - 15 minutes, until brown and crusty on top. Serve with a green salad.
