Grated cheese
Parmesan cheese
250g Pasta
3 rashers Bacon
4 cloves of Garlic minced
100g Double cream
1 teaspoon Basil
1 teaspoon Parsley
Leftover roast vegetables chopped

Instructions

Boil your pasta in a pot of water following the directions of the specific pasta you're using. Be sure to not overcook your pasta as it will continue cooking in the oven. 2-5 minutes before your pasta is ready, add your left over chopped vegetables (cook time depends on the veg).

Strain the pasta and veg (keep 4 tablespoons of the pasta water) and rinse the pasta and vegetables in warm water.

Add the pasta and veg to a casserole dish a long with cooked strips of bacon. Preheat the oven to 200C.

Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a pan and add the minced garlic until it begins to soften. Stir in the double cream, basil, parsley and thyme with two handfuls of grated cheese and a handful of parmesan cheese. Finally, add 4 tablespoons of left over pasta water.

Whisk the sauce over a low heat for a couple of minutes. Remove the creamy cheese sauce from the heat and pour on top of the pasta, vegetables and bacon.

Place the casserole dish in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until the casserole is cooked. Make sure the top does not burn.
