Recipe: Heinz Pasta Bake
Another recipe with a rather sneaky/ time saving ingredient in- a tin of heinz tomato soup! It's something we always have in our cupboards at home, and so i thought i would use it as a sauce and make a bake (in one of my rather lovely new Le Creuset bake dishes my mum bought me for Christmas). I have now moved out of my parent's house, to live with my boyfriendp- which has been a little bit daunting, but i love it really! But nowadays, now that i actually have a student loan, i'm looking for cheap easy and filling meals, and this really fits the bill. Nick ate this and couldnt even guess the "secret ingredient"- so trust me, it doesnt just end up tasting of soup- Lol!
Heinz Pasta Bake (serves 3) 78p per serving
280g dried penne
2 tbsp olive oil
1 large clove garlic, crushed
120g chestnut mushrooms, sliced
35g chopped/shredded smoked ham
1 tin Heinz cream of tomato soup
