“This recipe for a basic no-fuss, comforting pasta bake was published in a local newspaper a few years back and had been pinned to my dad's drawer ever since for trying out. He never got around to it, so last week when visiting him, I simply made it and it turned out quite well. Ive made a few adaptions to suit our taste and hope youll like it, too. :)”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook pasta in salted water according to package directions until al dente (firm to the bite). During the last 5 minutes of cooking, add the sliced carrots and chopped broccoli to the pasta water. Once ready, drain and set a side.
  2. In a large skillet heat the butter and then add the sliced spring onion and bell pepper. Saute for a couple of minutes until lightly browned. Whisk in the 2 tbs of flour and stir constantly for 1 minute. Add the milk and bring to a boil whisking frequently as to prevent lumps from forming.
  3. Season the sauce with the spices adjusting amounts to your taste.
  4. Place pasta and veggies in a medium size casserole dish and pour over sauce. Mix to combine. Sprinkle with cheese and bake in the preheated oven at 200°C/375°F for 40 minutes or until nicely browned on top and bubbling.
  5. Enjoy! :).
