    Serves: 4 

    • 500g fusilli pasta
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • oil, as needed for cooking
    • 500g Dolmio® tomato and basil pasta sauce
    • 250g Cheddar cheese, grated

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. Boil the pasta in water with a teaspoon of salt until it is soft to the touch and fluffy. You can add a drop of oil to stop it from sticking to the pan.
    2. Drain the pasta and combine with the pasta sauce straight from the jar. Give it mix, making sure all the pasta is covered in sauce.
    3. Pour the pasta into a casserole dish and add the grated cheese on top.
    4. Bake in the oven for about 10 to 15 minutes until the cheese melts and has a bit of a golden crust.


    If you want to use the tuna pasta bake sauce instead of the Dolmio®, you can add a tin of tuna into your pasta when mixing. If you like, you can add red onions and green peppers on top.
