I haven't made pasta bakes for a while, so here is a recipe for one. This is a very easy and quick bake to make and I like the mushroomy taste.
2 cups macaroni
250g chestnut mushrooms
200ml vegetable stock
Mushroom vegetable cube
Lemon and pepper bread crumbs
Pre-heat the oven to 180C. Boil the macaroni in salted water until they are al dente. Slice the chestnut mushrooms and chop the onion and garlic. Grate the mozzarella. Then prepare the vegetable stock and add parsley and mushroom vegetable cube in there.
Heat some olive oil in a pan and lightly fry the onion, garlic and mushrooms. Pour the vegetable stock into the pan and season with salt and ground black pepper. Mix the boiled macaroni with the pan contents and pour it all into an oven dish.
Add the mozzarella and mix some of it among the mushrooms and macaroni and cover the bake with it. Sprinkle lemon and pepper bread crumbs on the top. Never mind if you can't find the ready made lemon and pepper bread crumbs, you could just add some ground pepper and lemon zest to regular bread crumbs.
Bake for about 20 minutes until the cheese has melted and is golden brown. Enjoy warm with a nice and fresh side salad.
