About this recipe:This is a recipe I stumbled upon when doing my GCSE food tech - I wanted to make something a little different. The base recipe I use contains noodles, veg, and mashed potato, believe it or not. I know it sounds disgusting - it's delicious though! Anyway, the mashed potatoes can be replaced with sliced potatoes, the veg can be replaced with meat, quorn, or soya, etc. It's pretty versatile - although maybe not the choice for someone on a low-carb diet! ;) You will need a casserole dish to hand.

Peel the potatoes, and chop them.
Put the potatoes to boil in a pan of boiling water on a medium heat. This will probably take about 20 minutes, but if you chop them smaller than I do it'll take less time. Prod them with a fork every so often - they're done when they're soft.
While the potatoes are boiling, chop the broccoli and carrots up. Put them to boil in a different pan for about 5 minutes, depending on how small you chopped them and how crunchy you like them.
When the potatoes are finished, drain the water out of them, add the milk and butter/margarine, and mash them until soft and creamy.
Put a little cooking oil in a frying pan or wok, and add the noodles - they should take about 3 or 4 minutes to cook.
While the noodles are cooking, cook the pasata in a container in the microwave according to the instructions on the jar.
Get your casserole dish, and just shove all the veg, the noodles, and the pasata in there. Make sure to mix it up so you don't get lumps of it not covered in sauce.
Add the mash on top, and sprinkle with a little cheese if you want.
Finally, stick the whole thing in the oven for between 10 minutes and 15 minutes, depending on how long in between each thing cooking you left it. After a few tries of doing the recipe you'll probably be able to get the timing right, and you won't need to stick it in the oven - you can just eat it! :D
