Vegetable and risoni bake, How to Make

  • Step 1
    Preheat oven to 180°C. Place zucchini, tomatoes, pumpkin, risoni, stock and wine into a saucepan. Bring to the boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium. Simmer for 10 to 15 minutes, stirring to avoid sticking, or until all liquid has been absorbed.
  • Step 2
    Remove from heat. Stir in peas and pesto. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Step 3
    Spoon mixture into an 8-cup capacity ceramic baking dish. Sprinkle with parmesan. Bake for 15 minutes or until cheese is golden. Serve immediately.

To make your own basil pesto, process 2 cups basil leaves, 1/4 cup toasted pine nuts and 3 garlic cloves in a food processor. With motor running, slowly pour 2/3 cup extra virgin olive oil through feed tube. Stir in 100g grated parmesan cheese. Use in our bake, spread on sandwiches, serve with pasta or dollop on patties.
