This is the easiest, creamiest pasta bake recipe I have tried to date and it's so simple to make. It's now a family favourite that we make regularly. I usually add diced bacon and sundried tomatoes too for something a little extra.
Not bland?

Hey Helen. You must have used a rubbish soup. We enjoyed it very much many times. Try a roasted pumpkin soup next time
Not for me thank you!

I've never used soup in a recipe like this before and thought, why not? Glad I did, it added a lot of flavour and it was great. Will be making this again. I might even add a few sun dried tomatoes.
