This dish lets you use up all those 1/4 empty packets of pasta and uses them in a single dish. I always freeze stocks, and here you can use a gammon pressure cooked stock for a base flavour. The end result will keep you out of restaurants, the flavour and textures are fantastic. Even a pasta bake can taste like a gourmet dish. The key is a good stock and crunchy breadcrumb topping to add texture. This dish will be just as nice the next day microwaved.
Mini meatballs are cooked gently in a rich tomato sauce, then combined with penne and cheese and baked till warm and bubbly. Kids will especially love this dish, but it's an all-round family pleaser for sure. Perfect to prepare up to 24 hours in advance, then bake when ready. Cut leftovers in portions and freeze for the week!
This lasagne takes a long time to make (especially when you account for as many wine-drinking intervals as I do) and isn't the cheapest to make either. Making this lasagne is an event, and you bet all your guests are gonna be asking you for it again and again! Not for the faint of heart. All measurements are approximations. This is very much an 'as you feel/when it looks right' sort of recipe.
It's always interesting to ring the changes with a familiar dish. This is an attractive and healthy variation on lasagne, with flakes of salmon and chopped asparagus in a light lemon and herb sauce layered with the pasta. It's perfect for when asparagus is in season.
This hearty meal is cheap and easy to make. Pasta is baked with tuna, sweetcorn and peas in a cheesy white sauce. Enjoy any day of the week.
A rich dish made with meatballs in a tomato sauce with mozzarella served on tagliatelle. One of my favourite dishes.
As with all pasta bakes, this vegetable lasagne is family friendly and easy to prepare. It's chock-a-block with veg. You can opt for frozen peas and sweetcorn instead of tinned; simply defrost them first. Whilst it is baking in the oven, you can lean back, have a drink and enjoy the evening!
Yummy pasta bake, easy to throw together, great for students, low-cost and full of nutrients to help study!!!
Delicious family recipe my mum made and then taught me, so easy to cook and very cheap ideal for families and students,s etc. Perfect winter warmer.
Basic store cupboard ingredients to make a healthy, filling and tasty family favourite. Can be served with a side salad if wished. Tinned tomato soup is the secret ingredient - really adds to the dish.
