A pasta bake and other one-dish pasta meals, such as lasagne or cannelloni, are fantastic menu options for easy family eating – especially during busy weeks. And yet, you may not want to devour a big plate of pasta every night (particularly for those who don’t eat gluten).
So, if you’re feeling like a lighter baked dish, and still want a hearty dinner idea, you can simply swap out the pasta in your recipe and substitute it with vegetables! It’s as easy as that to dish up a hearty family-friendly baked meal, without the pasta.
To start, you can substitute out pasta sheets in your lasagne recipe for slices of zucchini and sweet potato; or, why not try using eggplant with your cannelloni? All you need is a mixture of veggies your family enjoys combined with your favourite cheese. So simple, and perfect for those looking for a lighter dinner option during cold weather.
