Method

  1. Heat oven to 190C/fan 170C/gas 5. Grease a 1.2 litre baking dish with the olive oil.
  2. Cook the pasta in salted boiling water in a large pan for 8 mins. Add all the vegetables and cook for another 2-3 mins until the pasta is tender and the vegetables slightly softened. Drain, then tip into the baking dish and mix well.
  3. Beat together the eggs and milk in a jug and add the thyme. Mix the two cheeses together and add most of it to the egg mixture, then season. Pour into the baking dish, stir gently, then scatter the rest of the cheese on top. Bake for 35-40 mins until set and golden. Cool for a few mins, then serve with a green salad.

This went down well. It is basically like a pasta omlette but it made a change to the usual pasta bake. I used mixed herbs as Idid not have lemon thyme. I will probably make again as it is a great store cupboard standby.

i am a total novice at cooking but i managed this. i used brown pasta and it worked well. Even my hungover boyfriend enjoyed it:)

Disappointing. I didn't care for the lemon thyme, and the dish was otherwise a bit bland. The family ate it, but with no real enthusiasm. Not one I'll make again.

This was lovely, I used green beans, mushrooms & baby corn instead. My eight year old wants to know when im making it again! Thats a thumbs up then.

Simple and quick, and made with store cupboard standbys. I would make it again!

Needs more pasta and something, maybe chilli for a bit more flavour.

Very easy to make and with a slight adjustment of quantities it works well. A very tasty meal - the addition of lemon thyme was excellent!

A really easy dish to make and a nice change from the usual tomatoey pastas. However the amount of pasta given in the recipe is definately not enough to serve four. I recommend using the same recipe with a higher quantity of pasta!

super easy and super tasty - use any vegetables you've got in the fridge! great, but i would say it doesn't quite serve four with the amounts given.
