Vegetable Pasta Bake with Cannellini Beans

Vegetable Pasta Bake with Cannellini Beans

Posted 2018-12-30 by Kate Matefollow
This is something I threw together last night when I didn't feel like heading out to the supermarket. I just decided I would make do with what was in my pantry and freezer and the result was great.

This is now one of my favourite vegetarian dishes

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 12 minutes
Serves: 4

500g fussili pasta
500g tomato pasta sauce*
1 bag of steam fresh vegetables (peas, corn, carrot)
1 cup of grated tasty cheese
1 400g can cannellini beans
1/4 cup of pine nuts

  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius or 160 degrees Celsius fan forced.
  • Then bring a large saucepan of water to the boil.
  • When boiling add the fussili pasta and cook as per the packet instructions.
  • While this is cooking, cook the steam fresh vegetables as per packet instructions.
  • When pasta is almost done add your pasta sauce and cannellini beans to a small saucepan and heat on low until just warmed through about 2-3 minutes.
  • Next remove from the heat, add the vegetables and stir through before adding the sauce mix to a large mixing bowl and set aside.

  • All the beautiful colours from the vegetables beans and sauce

  • Drain the pasta and pour into the bowl with the sauce and vegetables and gently toss through the sauce to make sure it is all combined.
  • Pour the mixture into a baking dish and cover with the tasty cheese.
  • Cook for 12 minutes or until cheese is melted on top.
  • While pasta is cooking, add the pine nuts to a small sauce pan and dry roast them. This takes about 1-2 minutes. The nuts should just slightly be brown. Remember to keep an eye on the pine nuts as they can burn easily.
  • Once cheese has melted, remove the pasta bake from the oven and serve. Sprinkle a few pine nuts over each serving.

  • A big bowl of pasta to fill me up. Yum

  • For this recipe I used 500g of my homemade pasta sauce I had in the freezer. You can use homemade or store bought.
  • Any vegetables or beans can be used as a substitute in this dish.
