Notes

Add your own ingredients to suit your taste, like mushrooms, spinach etc.

Don’t like blue cheese? Use another cheese you love, perhaps a Fairview white rock, or a delicious, creamy goat’s cheese.

Can I make this into a vegan baked feat pasta?

Yes, you can, simply replace the feta cheese with vegan feta or cream cheese substitute.
