Better still if they use local ingredients like Fleetwood fish!

  • Put pasta in dish, mix in ratatouille, rinse out tin with water add to pasta in dish. Stir, cover with foil.

  • After the dish has cooked for about half an hour uncover and stir, if the mix is too dry add more water.

  • When the pasta is almost cooked lay the of fish on the top.
