Loaded Veggie & Pasta Bake

Pasta seems to be on T’s perennial list of favourites. Works well for me because I can load it with lots of veggies mixed in with Stelline and he won’t know the difference, for now that is! 

Stelline is a tiny pasta variety traditionally used in soups and broths. I used it to make this cheesy pasta bake for T and it seemed to have worked well. I topped off this bake dish with a silky potato mash, the recipe of which I’ve shared in my previous post.





  • Zucchini, finely chopped
  • Onion, finely chopped
  • Mushroom, finely chopped
  • Garlic, finely chopped
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup Stelline, cooked
  • Mashed potatoes
  • Olive oil
  • 3 Tbsp Cream
  • Cheese, grated




  • Sauté the veggies with seasoning in the olive oil
  • Once par cooked add the cream and cheese and slow cook for about a couple of mins
  • Pour out the mix in a bake dish
  • Cover the top fully with the mashed potatoes
  • Bake for about 20 minutes at 200°
