Recipe; Tomato and Bacon Potato bake

The sweet baby potatoes and sauteed leek and onions make this tomato and bacon potato bake a great twist on the traditional pasta bake.

You say, Pasta, I say Potato

Yeh, ok, it doesn’t have the same ring to it as “Potato” / “Potato”. This is one of those recipes where you just shot anything you’ve got left in a pan and hope for the best. and I must admit, it didn’t disappoint.

There’s nothing wrong with Pasta bake sauces that you can get from every supermarket. They vary in price based on the brand you purchase, but they all are just a little bit dull. They all lack a little bit of something. However, they are ideal if you just want to make a quick pasta bake of course.

I fancied something a little different, so decided to add some additional ingredients and switch it up a bit and swapped the pasta with potatoes. and hey presto we have Tomato and Bacon Potato Bake
