This Meaty Pasta Bake is one of our favourite Slimming World Friendly recipes and the children love it too. It is easy to make and only takes half an hour. Perfect for a quick midweek dinner!
We use Fusili Pasta but Penne would be good too. You can use more or less than 300g on mince depending on how much meat you like. This serves 2 adults and 4 children in our house but will easily serve four adults. If you are feeding less than this you could save the leftovers for lunch the next day. This Meaty Pasta Bake is Syn free without the cheese.
