Lovely & filling. Added 1tbsp minced garlic, 10 mushrooms sliced. 700g Passata instead of pasta bake sauce. Added 250g dried pasta 45m before end of cooking time and half cup grated cheese. Cooked on low last 45m. Delish 😊

There won’t be enough liquid to take raw pasta (See HERE)

Has anyone tried adding the pasta straight in raw?

This was really tasty. An easy meal well worth trying. We all enjoyed it totally. I did add some spinach and used Pesto Basil & Parmesan Pasta Bake.

Used precooked chicken meatballs, added small handful of marinated olives and 12 mushrooms sliced plus 1tbsp minced garlic. Added pasta raw at the end cooked for additional 1hr.
Hearty & filling comfort food 😋

This was very tasty but wouldn’t use as much pasta next time. It was so easy & very yummy.

Lovely 😊 Made it straight to the directions. I was worried about the sauce seeming to be runny but once the nearly cooked pasta was added it soaked most of it up and the cheese thickned the rest nicely. Will be making again.

Absolutely beautiful. I added puréed zucchini, carrot and mushroom and didn’t bother pre cooking the pasta, just. Threw it in half an hour before turning off heat. Turned out fabulous

Very yummy!!! I added puréed zucchini, mushroom and carrot to mine and didn’t bother pre cooking the pasta, just threw it in half an hour before switching it off low heat and it turned out beautiful.

The photo on here doesn’t do this meal justice, it is way yummier than it looks. My hubby said it was the best pasta he’s ever eaten…and he’s eaten a lot of pasta! I would recommend pre cooking the pasta for only a few minutes as the pasta was a little over cooked but still yummy.
