I made this delicious pasta bake for dinner a couple of weeks ago. It was fab, really easy to make. I made a couple of changes, I added green beans to the recipe and I put tomatoes on top before the finally bake as I love tomatoes in macaroni cheese!
Sausage, Cheddar and Mushroom Pasta Bake (from Sainsbury's Magazine)
2 tbsp oil
2 red onions, chopped into wedges
300g mushrooms, halved or quartered
200g green beans, chopped in half
400ml crème fraîche
200g mature cheese
Preheat the oven to 200°C.
Cut each sausage into three and put in a large roasting tin. Drizzle over the oil, season with black pepper and toss. Roast for 15-20 mins until the sausages are starting to colour.
Mix in the red onion and mushrooms and cook for a further 20 mins or until they are tender and the sausages are golden.
Meanwhile, bring a large pan of water to the boil and cook the pasta for 10 mins adding the green beans for the last 3 mins of cooking time. Drain and toss in the tin with the sausages, onions and mushrooms. Spoon over the crème fraîche and stir it through, along with half of the cheese. Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top and bake for 10-15 mins until golden and crusty.
