Pesto Style Tomatoes

Ripened on the vine under the Hawke's Bay sun, Wattie's Pesto Tomatoes are blended with onions and basil, garlic, Parmesan, olive oil, and pinenuts.

Method
Step 1
Preheat oven to 190°C. Cook onion and garlic in a dash of oil in a saucepan until onion has softened. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
Step 2
Drain the excess water from the defrosted Wattie’s Free Flow Spinach using a sieve. Put spinach into a mixing bowl with onion and garlic, 100% New Zealand Pork Mince, parsley and tomato paste. Season well with salt and ground black pepper. Mix to combine.
Step 3
Pour a third of the Wattie’s Pesto Style Tomatoes into a lasagne style dish (2-litre capacity).
Step 4
Cut lasagne sheets into approximately 12x18cm pieces. Put an eighth of the meat filling along one end of the pasta sheet and roll up. Place into dish seam-side down. Continue assembling and place in a single layer in the dish. Add remaining Pesto Style Tomatoes. Sprinkle over grated cheese. Cover dish with foil.
Step 5
Bake for 30 minutes. Remove foil and continue cooking for a further 10-15 minutes until meat and pasta are cooked and top is golden. Serve with a crisp salad on the side.
