Great when the cupboards are bare or money's tight! And easy too! I use rice as the main thing, you can use anything really, pasta, spaghetti, meat, its entirely up to you, but here's how i made it with rice
Having been in catering for 40 years the biggest problems we all face is a filling tasty meal that is also healthy, this recipe can be used on its own over pasta with maybe a breaded escalope or as the base for Bolognese lasagna even spanish chicken. Due to the lack of any fat at all this does need a long slow cook. I tend to make a massive big pot of this and then freeze it into usuable size portions (rest of the now grown up family always grab a few from the freezer whenever they come round)
An easy recipe and simple to double or triple, depending on amount needed. Hope you enjoy!

This pasta bake is a very rich and cheesy meal. It works well with cannelloni tubes or large pasta shells.
