We love hearty food in our house and I love to experiment with food. Bolognese Pasta bake is one of our favourites, second to Spaghetti Bolognese.
Im always trying to to get my family to eat different things and at least try different foods, they have a habit of eating the same stuff all of the time. One Sunday I had all intentions of making a mince dinner, nothing special just mince & onions, mash and veg and Yorkshire Puds. The only issue was it was after 4pm on a Sunday and I totally forgot to buy potatoes… cant have mash without potatoes! Neither of us could be bothered to go to the shop.
So I thought I’d improvise with what we had. After a bit of googling I found Bolognese Pasta Bake recipes and knew those recipes wouldn’t go down well with my bunch, so I modified it slightly. Now I know they all love a bit of ‘spag bol’ so I made Bolognese Pasta Bake in the way I knew my family would like it. Heres my version of it, this is a hearty recipe and contains ALOT of cheese.
Bolognese Pasta Bake
1 hour, 30 minutes
For less servings simply reduce the ingredients. 500g of mince will serve 3-6 people.
1kg minced beef
400g Pasta, either: Penne/Shell/Fusilli
500g Grated Cheddar Cheese
125g Mozzarella Cheese cubed (grated is just as good)
