This Bacon Pasta Bake is a quick and reasonably light pasta bake, compared to the pasta bakes I usually make with loads of mince.
While the macaroni is cooking (I used macaroni as it’s quick to cook) brown the onion and bacon, then add the tomato and paste to create a sauce.
Then stir the sauce through the cooked pasta, spoon into a casserole dish, sprinkle with cheese and bake in oven.
Bake till cheese is golden.
