Find hearty, filling pasta bakes packed with vegetables including spinach lasagne, vegetable stuffed cannelloni and roast veg pasta bakes.
I made this the other night - it's nothing too special, I just really fancied some comfort food and a pasta bake is the ultimate comfort food for me. I made a simple cheese sauce and although I'm not a huge broccoli fan, I do love it in pasta bakes (what doesn't taste good when it's coated in cheese sauce anyway?) We also had some bacon in the fridge, and of course I always like to use onions and garlic with pasta so voila, this dish was born! And it is scrummy...
If you love courgettes and pasta, then this pasta bake recipe could be perfect for you as an easy lunch or dinner. Kids love it too!
This is a recipe I make all the time for my family. They love it, especially when there's a lot of cheese. Suits me because they are eating their veggies without noticing!
A hearty vegetarian dish packed with flavour, this is ideal for a family meal or casual entertaining. A selection of vegetables – butternut squash, asparagus and leeks – is roasted in garlicky olive oil, then tossed with chunky pasta shapes and a cheesy sauce. The final baking is done in the roasting tin, which saves on washing up.
Bacon, mushroom, spinach pasta.
A simple pasta bake using a jar of Dolmio® tomato and basil sauce and grated cheese. Very easy and flavourful.
This delicious pasta dish is a great use of healthy summer veg, such as courgette and aubergine. The idea is to have more veg than pasta, making it that much healthier. It's packed with flavour and nutrients, too. You can choose to omit the cheese if you're looking for a satisfying vegan dish. A great Meat-free Monday recipe!
This is a delicious cauliflower and cheese pasta bake. Guanciale is similar to bacon and can be left out for a vegetarian version of this tasty dish that the entire family will love.
A topping lightened with whisked egg whites and finished with a sprinkling of Parmesan can make a simple pasta and vegetable bake very special. You can use a wide variety of vegetables with the pasta in this easy version of a soufflé. Serve with a vitamin-packed salad of chicory and watercress.
After having this at a restaurant, I decided that I HAD to learn how to make it. Here is what I came up with.
