Under £5 homemade pasta bake meal - HEALTHY OPTION.


Today isn't a beauty related post however as it is a new year I want to become more creative and healthier therefore I decided I was going to make a pasta bake. This costs only £4.45 to make and for any college or uni student it should go down a treat.

Basically you can use any pasta
you want but I picked the Tesco
Farfalle pasta bows, you get
500G for £0.95.

For the sauce I used the Dolmio
stir in tomato and basil sauce
which is a lot easier and tastes delicious.
These come in different flavours which is even
better and you get 150G for £1.75.
Last thing I used was the Tesco
grated mozzarella which you can get
in a lighter version but you get 250G for £1.75.

This is the method...

1. Put half a pan of water onto the cooker and put a pinch of salt in it.
2. Wait until the water is hot and then add the pasta of your choice and how much you want.
3. Cook the pasta for the time it tells you.
4. Once cooked drain the pasta in a sieve.
5. Put as much grated mozzarella cheese in the bottom of the dish that you are putting in the oven and then add the pasta on top.
6. Open the Dolmio sauce and pour it on top, then get a spoon and mix it into the pasta and cheese.
7. Sprinkle some extra cheese on the top.
8. Preheat your oven  to 180°c
9. Put the dish into the oven and cook for 20-25 minutes or until the cheese has melted.
10. Get out the oven with oven gloves and eat away!
