A lovely stilton cheesy pasta dish with mushrooms, baked with melted mozzarella. A rather rich dish, but it's nice to spoil yourself now and then.

Chef's notes

After making this, next time I would add a lot more of the pasta cooking liquid, probably 3 large serving spoon's worth. After baking, even when covered with tin foil, it was quite dry. I would also bake it in a smaller, deeper dish, so moisture is retained. Very nice meal anyway and we will definitely be having this again.
