Italian Pasta Bake

Published Saturday, 06 September, 2014 by Isobel




  • - 2 italian stock cubes
  • - 1/2 a tin of tomatoes, or the whole tin depending on how many you make it for, or if you're going to make a big batch and freeze the rest.
  • - garlic
  • - onion, either red or white
  • -bacon, as much as you would like to use
  • - cheese
  • - pasta
  • - oil
  • - salt and pepper


Firstly start to cook the pasta so that it's ready for the bake

secondly fry the bacon in some oil in a frying pan, add the onion and garlic once the bacon is cooked and cook the onion down a little.

when these ingredients are cooked, put the tinned tomatoes in, and then crumble the italian stock cubes into the sauce and mix well to make sure it's distributed evenly throughout the sauce.

when the tomato sauce is very hot and the pasta is cooked, drain the pasta, add the sauce to the saucepan and mix together, and then put it into a oven proof dish, grate the cheese on top, as much as you'd like of course and cook in the oven for about 20 minutes at 180c until nice and crispy and brown on top!

    You can put the salt and pepper in whenever you want, if you taste your sauce and decide whether it needs it or now! I usually just put it on the top with the cheese, because to stock cube usually holds quite a bit of salt itself!
