Recipe by: Goody Kitchen
Cook the pasta until al dente; 2 minutes less than the instructions on the packet.
In a large frying pan, heat the oil. Sauté the onions peppers, mushrooms and pepperoni.
Add the tomato sauce, thyme, salt and pepper and let it simmer for 5 minutes.
Add the cooked pasta to the sauce and stir.
Put all the ingredients in an oven dish. Cut the fresh mozzarella into 12 pieces and place in the pasta mix. Sprinkle the cheddar and Parmesan on top.
Place the dish in a preheated oven at 180oC for 25 minutes or until golden.
Sprinkle chili flakes on top and serve.
