Cooking Time: 25 minutes
Serves: 4

400g spiral pasta (gluten free if required)
Salted water, boiled (reserve 1/4 cup pasta water)

1 tbsp cornflour
2 cups grated cheese (lactose free if required)

  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
  • Cook the pasta in salted boiling water for 2 minutes less than the packet instructions. Drain, reserving 1/4 cup of the pasta water, and set aside.
