Easy Vegetarian Pasta Bake Recipe // Spoonie Cooking

Hey guys!  As you may know, I have been a vegetarian for around 8 years.  I will pre-emptively answer the question I am always asked – why?  I am just a big, soft animal lover.  One day, I was at a petting farm, stroking an adorable lamb, and it struck me that I just couldn’t carry on eating meat.  I don’t judge those who do eat meat (including my husband, who is a big meat and fish lover!) but it just isn’t the right thing for me.  So all of the recipes or food pics I share on this blog will be vegetarian.  But still very tasty!

Tonight, hubby and I wanted something quick and easy to eat.  I am having quite a bad M.E phase and he has a bit of a cold, so we didn’t have much energy to spare for cooking.  We decided on a quick but tasty pasta bake.  We did not use a recipe, but here is what it roughly was:

  • 300g pasta (enough for 4 portions – lunch tomorrow sorted, yay!)
  • 1 large jar of Dolmio spicy bolognese sauce
  • Broccoli
  • Mushrooms
  • Spinach
  • Garlic
  • Green olives
  • Small amount of red chilli
  • Mozzarella (melted on top)
  • Extra salt, pepper and mixed herbs.

We cooked the pasta the usual way for around 10 mins, then added everything listed above (apart from the mozzarella) into a large ceramic oven dish.  We shredded the mozzarella over the top and put it in the (fan) oven at 180C for 30 minutes.  If you have a regular oven, it would be 200C.

I hope this recipe can be useful for any spoonies who need something quick and easy, when there is no energy to spare!  (Or of course, anyone who fancies making it!)
