My all time favourite Pasta Bake Recipe


Hello Dear reader,

I am sure every family have a go-to Pasta Bake recipe, it could be creamy chicken and mushrooms or like this one, with a tomato and bacon flavour base. This recipe originally came from my Aunty Brenda, she bought this dish along to a BBQ we were having years ago. It was such a hit with everyone, especially the kids, so I asked for the recipe. Usually she would write it down in her beautiful cursive writing, but this one was so easy, she just talked me through it.
It is delicious, quick to make and frugal, so it ticks all the boxes.
