Sophie's Pasta Bake

Servings 4 people


  • olive oil
  • 2 large chicken breasts diced
  • 1 large onion finely chopped
  • 2 large carrots grated
  • 1 green bell pepper finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic finely chopped
  • mixed herbs
  • 200 g dried pasta I usually use penne or fusilli
  • 400 g tin chopped tomatoes
  • 500 g jar tomato passata
  • 100 g cheddar cheese


  1. Preheat the oven to 200c/180c fan oven/390f. Cook your pasta in a pan of salted water until just cooked. Drain and set aside.
  2. Add a splash of oil to a pan and cook the diced chicken breasts. When they are cooked transfer to a bowl and set aside.
  3. Add a little more oil to the pan and add the onion, carrots, bell pepper and garlic and cook over a low heat until softened. Then add the tinned tomatoes, tomato passata and herbs and bring to the boil. Once boiling reduce to a low simmer and leave to cook for 10 minutes.
  4. Mix the chicken, pasta and sauce/vegetable mix together and tip into a lasagne or casserole dish. Sprinkle with the grated cheese and bake in the oven for 30 minutes until the cheese is golden. Serve with a crispy salad and enjoy!
