Made this today everyone loved it, made it with pork (you could easily double the amount of ham, chicken etc).

Made this last night, and it was fabulous - and sooooo easy and tasty!  I made quite a few "tweaks", mainly to use up what was left in the fridge, and also to hide extra vegetables in it for the kids.  This is the version I made:

160g macaroni
150g left-over roast chicken
1 spring onion, sliced
1 roasted and peeled capsicum (only put this in to use it up)
Big handful fresh swiss brown mushrooms (about 6)
1 zucchini
1 carrot
1 green capsicum
200g skim evaporated milk (from a can) - instead of cream
500g home-made tomato passata (quite runny, so I used this instead of water and added extra just to use it up)
Chopped fresh parsley and basil
Cracked pepper
1 tablespoon TMX vegetable stock concentrate
1 tablespoon homemade pizza sauce
2 teaspoons flour
150g mozzarella cheese

Placed uncooked pasta in pyrex dish.
Spread chopped chicken, sliced spring onion and roasted capsicum over the pasta
Put mushrooms, carrot, zucchini and green capsicum in bowl of TMX.  3 seconds speed 5 to coarsely chop.
Added everything else except the cheese.
Brought it up to 100 degrees, initially on speed 3 to mix, then down to speed 2 - took about 8 minutes to get to 100.
Poured over stuff in pyrex dish.  Sprinkled with cheese.
Into preheated oven at 180 degrees for 35 mins.
Perfect!

I think it might be nice with tuna as well .......

Thanks for the fabulous recipe isi!  Well definitely be making this one again!

200g skim evaporated condensed milk (from a can) - instead of cream


Did you really use condensed milk KJH or do you mean evaporated milk  ??? ???

I agree, this recipe is just so versatile and a great one for using up all those bits and pieces which would normally be thrown out.

 :D :D :D :D :D You could have had it for sweets.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

I've been looking through Isi's recipes recently and had forgotten about this one.Feeling lazy tonight I looked through my supplies and put this together.Didn't have cream so used evaporated milk,added a few fresh mushrooms,a packet of air dried ham and tasty cheddar.DS said as far as he's concerned it's the best Pasta Bake ;D

It's like Parma Ham Judy  ;D It was cured here in the UK so under EU regulations you can't call it Parma Ham.Costs a lot cheaper ;)

Thanks for the inspiration, CC 😄

Made mine using leftover pasta sauce and roast chicken, cauliflower, frozen peas, a bit of cream, a dash of milk and a mixture of cheeses 😋
