This is not for the healthy eaters out there, this is packed with cheese, it includes my sun-blush tomatoes which gives it a little sweetness, and smoked bacon because why not!

Prep 20 minutes
Total 35 minutes
  • Fry the bacon until crisp, remove with a slotted spoon and place onto kitchen paper to drain, set aside.
  • Melt the butter into the bacon fat, then add the flour and cook and stir for a couple of minutes, gently pour in a little of the milk and whisk so it is combined without lumps. Keep whisking and pour in the remaining milk.
  • Keep it on a simmer, add the chilli, paprika and chilli powder and stir, then add the cheeses. (Keep a handful of each cheese for the topping).
  • Once the sauce is thickened and the cheeses are melted add a good handful of basil leaves and the cooked pasta, mix until it is all combined.
  • Place into an oven dish and then dot over the tomatoes.
  • Sprinkle over the remaining cheese, add more basil leaves and then drizzle over a little of the tomato oil.
  • Place under a grill, and cook until the cheese on the top is bubbling and browned.
  • Serve.


I’m Lulu, and have been in love with food my whole life. I however took the route of fashion design and have worked within the industry for nearly 20 years, but I always shared recipes with friends and colleagues and dreamed of cooking full time. I am a previous Masterchef contestant which just confirmed I needed cooking to be part of my life plan. These days I am lucky to have a hand in both; being creative in any area is really what I enjoy.


I cook a lot of curries as my family have Indian roots, I also have a cookbook out called CURRY UP. But don’t get ‘curried’ away as I enjoy cooking most foods.


It just about sharing the food love really, nothing more. I hope what you see makes you hungry and entices you to try the recipes out!
