Cooked or uncooked pasta

Did you pre cook the pasta first before mixing thru the sauce or did you mix it thru uncooked & then bake? 15-20 mins baking doesn’t seem long enough to cook the pasta from scratch.

This is so yummy & easy to make. I used 200g sweet potato & 200g pumpkin and diced instead of grating. I also placed fresh torn basil leaves on top before putting in the oven. Would be delicious with mushrooms as well :)
