Another comfort food supper.
Pasta bakes are great when it is cold outside and are a good way to use up odds and ends too.
I had a couple of chorizo-style sausages in the freezer and I used these chopped up into small chunks as the meaty base for a pasta bake, with leeks, courgettes, garlic, diced carrots and tomatoes.
I sautéed all the vegetables in the oil that I used to cook down the sausage pieces, breaking them up with the spoon to release all the flavours. When these were done, I mixed them with the cooked pasta and topped it off with grated Double Gloucester cheese and baked it in a Mark 6 oven and served it with some warmed pitta bread.
