This is a very yummy, very cheap dish to make ... and simple too! Thanks for this recipe! Defo making this again-19 Apr 2011

Everyone loved it. Used peas as the green veg.-13 Nov 2014


Mamacook

There is something about baked pasta dishes which feel somehow more indulgent and satisfying than normal pasta. For me I also find I can squeeze more vegetables in and reduce the quantity of pasta per person.

I just made this for my husband and I but I know my son would love it. Mushrooms and prawns are two of his favourite things. That said, the prawns are optional and more for a protein source than flavour.


Prawn and Vegetable (or just vegetable) Pasta Bake - serves 2 with leftovers (or would easily serve 2 adults and a toddler)

160g Dried pasta, I used penne
60g sweet red pepper (capsicum), diced finely
150g Sliced Mushrooms
A little oil
1 tsp Sweet (not hot) smoked paprika
200g Home made tomato sauce (I used this recipe)
150g Frozen prawns, defrosted (or 120g chilled prawns), small ones are fine. (Optional)
200ml Milk, use full fat if cooking for a baby or toddler
1 tbsp Cornflour
80g Vintage or Extra mature Cheddar or Parmesan

Fry the mushrooms and pepper in the oil until slightly coloured. Put into a bowl. Cook the pasta to 1 minute short of the pack time suggested (my pack said to cook for 10-12 minutes so I cooked for 9). Rinse the pasta under a cold tap in a sieve to cool quickly.

Meanwhile make the white sauce by heating the milk in a microwave until boiling. Mix the cornflour with a splash of water to make a paste. Mix slowly into the boiling milk. If it doesn't thicken immediately put back into the microwave for 30 secs or so watching all the time (it can boil over).

Mix the tomato sauce, pasta, vegetables, prawns and paprika together and put into a baking dish. Top with a drizzle of the white sauce (it doesn't need to form a layer) and then sprinkle over the grated cheese.

I prepared this in advance and chilled the dish then cooked this in an oven from cold at 190oC, it took 25-30 minutes but if you preheated your oven and cooked immediately 20-25 minutes would probably work.

I had a portion left and reheated it the next day at work, it was nice to have something comforting from home for lunch.


  • 750ml/1¼ pint full-fat milk
  • 120g/4½oz unsalted butter, plus extra for greasing
  • 50g/1¾oz plain flour
  • freshly grated nutmeg
  • 300g/10½oz dried pasta, such as farfalle
  • 250g/9oz smoked salmon, cut into strips
  • 250g/9oz Gruyère, grated
  • 75g/2½oz Parmesan, grated
  • 3 tbsp dried breadcrumbs
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper

Preheat the oven to 200C/180C Fan/Gas 6. Grease a gratin dish with a little butter. In a small saucepan, slowly bring the milk to a simmer.

Meanwhile, to make the béchamel sauce, melt half the butter over a very low heat in a heavy-bottomed saucepan. Stir in the flour with a wooden spoon. Cook, stirring constantly, until just golden but not brown.

Remove from the heat and add the hot milk, a few tablespoonfuls at a time, until it is incorporated and the sauce is smooth. Season with salt and pepper and the nutmeg. Return the saucepan to the heat and slowly bring the sauce to the boil, stirring all the time.

Cook the pasta in a saucepan of boiling salted water according to the packet instructions. Cut the remaining butter into small pieces. Drain the pasta and mix in half the pieces of butter.

Spoon 2–3 tablespoons of the béchamel into the prepared dish, cover with a third of the pasta, then half the salmon and half the Gruyère. Sprinkle with some of the Parmesan and breadcrumbs. Spread over some béchamel, then cover with half the remaining pasta and all the remaining salmon and Gruyère. Add the remaining pasta, finishing with a covering of béchamel. Sprinkle with the rest of the Parmesan and breadcrumbs and dot with the remaining pieces of butter.

Bake for 20–30 minutes, or until the top has formed a golden crust. Remove from the oven and let the dish rest for 2–3 minutes before serving.


  • 360 g raw king prawns
  • 1 tbsp grated fresh ginger
  • 1 onion, peeled and finely sliced
  • 220 g baby corn, cut into chunks
  • 4 tsp red Thai curry paste
  • 1 x 400ml tin coconut milk
  • 360 g fusilli bucati
  • 4 handfuls fresh spinach
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges
  • 0.5 tbsp olive oil

Place the prawns and ginger in a bowl. Cover and marinate for 30 minutes.

In a shallow frying pan, heat the oil over a medium-high heat, then add the onion and baby corn. Fry for 5 minutes, then stir in the red curry paste. Continue to cook for another 5 minutes, then add the coconut milk.

Reduce the heat and simmer gently for 10 minutes or until the sauce has thickened slightly. Stir in the prawns and cook for 3 minutes until pink.

Meanwhile, cook the pasta according to the pack instructions. Drain, stir through the spinach to wilt, then toss into the sauce. Divide between the serving bowls and garnish with a wedge of lime.

Cook's tip: use handy frozen spinach instead of fresh - it will still taste just as good.


Halal you

Serves: 4 – unless you are serving someone particularly ravenous (i.e. your other half), then maybe 3!

Time: approx. 1 hour – I have been realistic and included veg chopping time

*Warning: This recipe creates a lot of dirty dishes, so agree who’s washing up before you start*

  • 1 bowl (cereal bowl) of Dried Pasta
  • ½ bowl of Cooked Prawns
  • 1 Onion (medium-sized)
  • 3 Large Peppers (mixture of red and yellow)
  • 1 Broccoli Floret
  • 1 tbsps of Garlic
  • 1 tbsp of Ginger

  • Olive Oil
  • Grated Cheese

White Sauce

  • 120g of Flour
  • 80g of Butter
  • 1 Tbsp of Garlic
  • Salt
  • Black Pepper

1. Fill saucepan (make sure it’s more than double the size for the amount of pasta you have) just over half full with water, add a splash of olive oil and a sprinkling of salt

2. Place saucepan on full heat to boil

3. In meantime chop up onion, peppers and broccoli

4. Once water has boiled pour pasta in and turn down heat to medium, stir pasta every 3-5 mins to ensure it does not stick to the pan

5. Pasta should be ready after about 10 mins – leave slightly al denté

Prawns & Veg

6. Put a generous splash of olive oil into a wok and put it on full heat, once the oil is hot, turn this down the medium

7. Throw in all the veg (be careful of oil splashing out)

8. Stir the vegetables and add garlic and ginger (I find using a wooden spatula best)

9. Continue to stir, then add chilli and grind fresh pepper in (flavour to your own taste)

10. Keep moving the vegetables around in the pan for about 5 mins, or until soft

11. Add the prawns right at the end only cooking for about 30 seconds

White Sauce

13. To the make the white sauce – put a small saucepan on a high heat and add all the butter

14. Turn the heat down to medium-high and melt all the butter

15. Add the garlic and salt (to taste) then stir

16. Slowly start to add the flour, a little bit at a time to avoid lumps

17. Keep adding the flour until you have a large dry ball of mixture

18. Add milk to this, half at a time, breaking up and stirring in the ball of mixture

19. Once there are only small bits of mixture floating around in the liquid, get a whisk and whisk the mixture over the heat until it starts to thicken

20. Switch off the heat just before it gets to your required consistency – i.e. a thick mixture which is similar to pancake mix

21. Pour the white sauce and drained pasta into the wok with the vegetables and mix – add more seasoning as required

The Finale – Bake!

22. Pour this mixture into your casserole dish and top with grated cheese

23. Pop in the oven for 25 mins at 200˚C and then voilá! You will (should) have a beautiful pasta bake… Yum!
