Savoy cabbage pasta bake

From Cookipedia

For a change, I thought I would make our regular pasta bake, using salami and mozzarella, but use savoy cabbage instead of actual pasta. To balance the saltiness of the salami I added a good few tablespoons of blackcurrant jam. It might seem unusual, but it worked really well and shall be made again.

We served it with air-fried roast potatoes to make up for the missing carbs!

Mise en place

  • Preheat your oven to 200° C (400° F - gas 6), [fan oven 180° C & reduce cooking time by 10 mins per hour]


  1. Blanch the chopped cabbage for 4 minutes in boiling water to which the stock cube has been added.
  2. While the cabbage is cooking, drain the mozarella, tear it into small pieces and allow it to drain over a sieve to remove excess water.
  3. Drain the cabbage
  4. Oli the baking tray / dish with olive oil
  5. Spread the chopped cabbage into the dish and sprinkle with chopped parsley and black pepper.
  6. Layer the mozzarella and salami, leaving a layer of salami on the top. We like crispy salami!
