- 3 tbsps Naturel Grapeseed Oil Spray
- ½ packet (250 g) Naturel Organic Fusilli
- 1 jar (340 g) Naturel Organic Tomato With Peppers Pasta Sauce
- 2 cups grated cheddar and mozzarella cheese
- 2 cups ham, cubed
- 2 cups pineapple, cubed
- 2 cups cooking cream
- 1 tbsp Italian herbs
- 1 tbsp ground or coarse black pepper
- ½ onion, diced
- 6 cloves garlic, finely chopped
Cook Naturel Organic Fusilli by boiling in a pot until half-cooked, for approximately 4 mins.
Heat 1 tbsp Naturel Grapeseed Oil Spray in a non-stick pan. Fry chopped onion and pineapple on medium, till slightly browned.
Add cubed ham and chopped garlic, and continue to fry on medium for another 5 mins.
When ham is slightly browned at the edges, add Naturel Organic Tomato With Peppers Pasta Sauce and 1 cup of cooking cream, reserving the other cup for later. Mix well, add Italian herbs and black pepper, and cook for another minute.
Add half-cooked fusilli, mix well and remove from heat.
Spread half the contents onto a baking tray. Layer on half of the grated cheese, and coat with a layer of Naturel Grapeseed Oil.
Spread the rest of the fusilli mixture in the baking tray, and pour in 1 cup of cooking cream. Spread the rest of the mixed cheese to cover the top evenly, and spray a thin layer of Naturel Grapeseed Oil on top.
Pop in pre-heated oven at 165 C for 20 to 25 mins. Check to ensure the top layer does not burn, and comes out a little crusty. Serve warm.
