recipe adapted from original by viv- thank you
serves 3
for the burgers:-
the recipe asked for mince but i used some steak i had in the freezer. i let it defrost a bit then blitzed it in the food processor, that way it stays in mince consistency not a puree.!
so, either a pack of mince or steak minced up.

6 babybel lights ( 2 syns each or 3 for a hea)

2 tsp garlic granules/powder

1 tsp paprika

1/2 tsp chilli powder

2 beef oxos
for the pasta:-

1 onion chopped

1 red pepper chopped

1 courgette sliced

5 mushrooms sliced

tin of tomatoes

2 tsp oregano

2 tsp tomato puree

2 tbsp of garlic herb philly

cook pasta as pack instructions and preheat oven gas 6
mix burger ingredients together and season then shape around the babybels spray with frylight and place on a tray in the oven for 10 mins or until cooked. mine cooked really quickly and were succulent and delicious. 
fry light a pan and add the peppers, onions and courgettes, cook for 2 mins then add mushrooms and tbsp water.
add a tin of tomatoes & the oregano. 
when thats all cooked through, stir in 2 tbsp (30g) of garlic & herb philly, i used tescos brand as philadelphia was out of stock. (1.5 syns)
