Warm Courgette & Mozzarella Pasta Salad

Change up your bruschetta toppings with this mozzarella and fig recipe. When roasted, figs become sweet and caramelised and will dissolve in your mouth. A mild cheese, like mozzarella, adds a freshness to the topping, along with the mint.

Asparagus, Peas & Mozzarella
