Carole’s Favourite

The lovely Carole has offered to share one of her family favourite supper dishes and it looks delicious! Caroles favourite easy pasta Bake-  in the oven! 

They love it and have this dish at least twice a month!

These sort of ‘Pasta in the oven’ suppers are such staples in our busy family lives! So simple, easy, quick and so tasty!

They call it ….‘ Carole’s Favourite Pasta In The Oven!’

It may seem a bit of a faff first time around but it really doesn’t  take long to throw together.

It can also be made ahead of time (just needs a little longer on the oven)

It s delicious blend of Penne pasta, tomatoes, chorizo, courgettes and lovely creamy fresh Mozzarella topped with Basil!

I’m drooling just trying this up!

  1. Well that’s tea one day this week , sounds just us Clare thanks , Tesco shopping list here we come ♥️♥️♥️

  2. Sounds lush, can’t wait to try it

  3. Yum! I love pasta bakes and this one sounds really easy with lots of veggies! #Recipeoftheweek

  4. Fabulously easy and tasty Saturday supper!

  5. Added a grated clove of garlic and a shake of crushed chillies at the wilting basil stage, and grated cheddar in the absence of mozzarella. Scrummy!

  6. I’m doing a lite version of this tonight with courgetti and substituting half the chorizo for chicken.

  7. Oh my goodness – this looks amazing! Might give it a try this weekend! x
