Pasta Bake (GF & DF)

Who doesn’t love pasta?? I absolutely love a good pasta but a lot of the time, the heavy pasta and creamy sauces/cheese don’t sit well in my stomach. So here is a twist on your classic bolognese, that’s also light on your tummy !!

you will need:
  • 3 cups of uncooked buckwheat pasta (you can buy this from coles in the health food section)
  • 1/3 of a bottle of passata sauce (if needed)
  • 2 tbsp of nutritional yeast
  • 2 cups of pre cooked Bolognese mixture (recipe here)
  • Extra nutritional yeast to top
  • Goats cheese to top 
Method:
  1. Cook pasta as per packet instructions
  2. Once pasta is cooked, drain and transfer to a baking dish
  3. Mix together the pasta, bolognese mixture, extra passata sauce (if needed) and the nutritional yeast
  4. Top with extra nutritional yeast and goats cheese (or normal cheese if you would prefer)
  5. Bake in the oven on 200 degrees celsius for 20-30 mins until hot and crispy
  6. Enjoy as a delicious dinner or lunch with a side salad – yum!

Notes:

  • This can easily be made vegetarian/vegan: skip the bolognese mixture and use 1 whole bottle of passata sauce and extra nutritional yeast
  • Feel free to use any pasta you like, I just prefer buckwheat pasta
  • Feel free to use mozzarella/shredded tasty cheese instead of nutritional yeast and goats cheese if you have no problems with dairy
  • Lastly… ENJOY, this is a good one!
