A pasta bake was one of my go to simple recipes when I was at university and it has never lost it's appeal. Easy to make, filling and tasty, it's a meal all in one dish. It's really up to you what you want to put in it. If you have left over chicken from a Sunday roast you could throw that in too.

Simple but delicious with bubbling cheese

I last made this when I had a friend and her daughter visiting as I wanted something that both children and adults would enjoy. I used up the vegetables I found in the fridge but you could make it with just about anything. If you have sweetcorn or peas in the freezer, pop a handful in too.

Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
Makes: 4 generous servings

300g dry pasta shapes
390 g chopped tinned tomatoes
300ml creme fraiche
1 red pepper
1 leek
1/2 swede
1 medium onion
150g button mushrooms
150g cheddar cheese

Boil the pasta until al dente (still with a little bite)
If you have very firm vegetables like swede then cut into cubes and par boil.
Cut the onion and pepper into cubes and fry
Slice the leek into rounds and half or quarter the mushrooms and add to the onions and pepper part way through frying.
Add the tinned tomatoes and creme fraiche and mix well.
Add the pasta and mix thoroughly with your creamy tomato vegetable assembly.
Put the pasta mix in an oven proof dish and cover well with grated cheese.
Pop in the oven for 20 minutes at 170 degrees C until the cheese is bubbling.
