Super vegetarian pasta bake recipe for students

This veggie packed vegetarian pasta bake makes for a brilliant student meal.

You can use all sorts of veg in this dish but we’ve chosen red pepper, mushrooms and courgette, as well as sweetcorn.


We’ve mixed them with Italian passata (although tinned tomatoes will work fine) as well as some cream cheese (optional), topped up with some grated cheddar and sliced tomatoes.

The ingredients below will make a pasta bake that’ll give six good sized servings.
