EASY TOMATO PASTA BAKE



Pasta bakes are very versatile dishes, with regard to both ingredients and sauces. To me, they are very comforting. This recipe is simple, tasty and super quick to make. I hope that you enjoy it as much as I do and remember to tag me in your photos on Instagram (@sophiemleung) as I love seeing them!

Ingredients

  • 75-100g Fusilli Pasta (cooked according to directions on pack)
  • 2 finely chopped Garlic Cloves
  • 1/2 can of Chopped Tomatoes
  • 1/2 small Red Pepper
  • 1/2 White Onion
  • 1/2 Tomato
  • 1 Vegetable Stock Cube
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Thyme
  • 2 tsp Oregano
  • 3 tsp Paprika
  • 40g Grated Cheese

Method

  1. Pre-heat the oven/grill to 200 degrees.
  2. Cook the pasta according to the instructions on the pack. I like to cook mine in a frying pan so I can just use the one pan. 
  3. Once the pasta is cooked, drain some of the water whilst leaving some in the pan, this is to ensure the pasta doesn't stick and it also gives the sauce a bit more flavour.
  4. Add the vegetable stock cube, garlic, red pepper, onion and fresh tomato. Stir well and leave on a medium heat for 3 minutes.
  5.  After 3 minutes, add the chopped tomatoes and seasonings and stir, leave to simmer for 5 minutes.
  6. Transfer the pasta to an ovenproof dish and top with the grated cheese and leave in the oven for 10 minutes.
  7. Remove the pasta bake from the oven and top with fresh coriander and serve with salad (optional).
