On Slimming World it is so easy to make a delicious pasta bake that will keep you full for hours. I would say that I make a pasta bake a couple of times a week. I just love pasta that much! Who’s with me? They are great for making in bulk and even freezing if you wanted to. One of my favourites is my delicious tuna pasta bake.
Today I have a lovely pasta bake recipe for you all which is inspired by my lovely friend Hayley who always posts pictures of her yummy pasta bakes on Instagram. If you aren’t following her, you should be now.
I’ll be honest and admit that for a long time I wasn’t keen on using syns for sausages as a lot of them are quite high in syn value. Then I heard about the Heck sausages which have been given a big thumbs up by everyone I know at Slimming World. I had been wanting to try them for a long time but my local Tesco only stocked a couple of them but I was finally able to buy them in Asda. I bought the Smoky Paprika Chicken and Zesty Chicken Chipolatas which are absolutely delicious. They are 0.5 syns for two and totally worth it as they add a lot of flavour to this delicious pasta bake.
70g pasta per person
Sausages (I use Heck)
2 garlic cloves
1 red chilli
1 stalk of celery
1 tsp Italian Herbs
Salt & Pepper
Fresh Chopped Basil
Mixed Salad Peppers
Mozzarella (I use half fat)
Firstly, boil your pasta and cook your sausages and set aside.
Finely chop (or blend) your carrot, celery, onion and chilli.
In a pan fry your vegetables in frylight and add in some mixed salad peppers.
Once the vegetables are softened add in your Italian herbs, pinch of salt and black pepper, tbsp tomato purée, then add in a carton of passata, 250ml water and chicken oxo and some fresh chopped basil.
Let it simmer for around half an hour and once thickened to your liking add the pasta and chopped sausages and add to an oven proof dish, tear off your mozzarella and add on top.
Place in the oven on 200 for about 20 minutes or until golden.
