Delicious (52 New Recipes)

As part of my 52 new recipes challenge, Cheesy pasta bake has become a firm favourite - it has been so popular at home that I have made a few times.

I only just realised that I'd not posted about it when I went to find the recipe on my recipe page and it was not there! So - to remedy that, I thought I would use it for 'Delicious'.

No photos I am afraid - scoffed too quickly and who wants to see a picture of a pile of used plates soaking in the sink 😁

So - here are the details, as ever I made a couple of changes. The recipe says to layer breadcrumbs at the bottom of the baking dish - I did this initially and found that they absorbed all the sauce then stuck to the dish. So now I just put crumbs or small cubes of bread and grated cheese as the final layer before putting into the oven. Delicious!

Will I do it again?  Oh yes, have done already and Youngest and GF have a copy of the recipe and have made it successfully too.

Any alterations? Only the breadcrumbs and the addition of slices of bell pepper and mushrooms.

  1. Sounds so yummy & we too love pasta bakes & I quite often add some veg. It may be some cauliflower or silver beet, but anything would do. Thanks for our hunts & I think my link worked after I somehow linked to an earlier post, but sorted it I hope. Take care & hugs.

  2. Sounds absolutely delicious! I am very partial to pasta and definitely with pepper and mushrooms. I know for a fact Sr P wouldn't like it much if breadcrumbs were used as it would thicken it up too much for him. In my case taking into account your alterations I'd say "Yum!" keep well Amanda x

    1. I thought it was much better minus the breadcrumbs so the little crouton style topping was - in my opinion - an improvement :) I hope you give it a try x

  8. You know me, love cheese and love pasta, but you know B....he is not so keen. But I intend to try it next time I manage to persuade him we need to have a pasta dish again!!! Can always put in some chopped ham perhaps. 🧑 xx
