Ingredients

Sauce

  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 400g chopped tomatoes
  • 2 tsp tomato puree (or 2 tsp ketchup)
  • 2 tsp dried mixed herbs
  • a pinch of salt and pepper (seasoning)

Pasta Bake

  • 350g Fusilli (or any type) pasta
  • 1 Weetabix, crumbled
  • 100g cheddar, grated
  • 1 tbsp fresh basil, chopped (to garnish)

Method

  1. Heat the oil in the saucepan. Add the onion and cook for 3 minutes until soft. Then, add the garlic and cook gently for another minute.

  2. Add the chopped tomatoes, tomato puree and stir. Then add the mixed herbs and the salt and pepper. Simmer for 15-20 minutes until the sauce is thick and rich.

  3. Meanwhile, cook the pasta to the pack instructions (usually around 10-12 minutes). Drain the pasta once it is cooked and soft.

  4. Mix the pasta and sauce together in a dish and sprinkle the crushed weetabix on the top and then the grated cheese.

  5. Place under the grill under a high heat for 3-4 minutes, or until the cheese has melted. Serve warm and fresh with the chopped basil as a topping. Can also serve with garlic bread as a side dish or some salad.
