Was a really nice change, something different to do with pasta and mince! Got 4 portions left for lunches.Thank you for sharing x-30 Jul 2015

by E. Hart

Made this tonight and EVERYONE went back for seconds. I also used 2 cloves of fresh garlic. I used cyan pepper instead of red pepper flakes and regular salt because I didn't have an celery salt on hand. Served with green beans. Nice easy meal!-27 Jul 2009

by SHELBYCANCOOK

Wow this was really good. I made the recipe as written with the tomato sauce and juice and it was fantastic. I was toying with the idea of just using jarred pasta sauce, but knowing how good it tastes as written I will make it this way from now on, DELISH!-16 Sep 2009


Cheesy Chili Pasta Bake in 30 Minutes

Before I get to today’s recipe, I want to talk about an important problem that many families face and an easy way we can help.

Did you know that 1 in 5 children in America live in a home without enough food to eat? That is unreal to me since so many of us have more food than we need. It is very expensive to live in San Francisco, and there are a lot of very wealthy people here. How then are people going hungry in my community? Why do some people have so much while others have so little? We do have an excellent food bank in our city, but I think they just can’t reach everyone who needs help.

There is a misconception that hunger is a problem of homeless people or families obviously living in poverty, but this is a problem that affects many hard working families, especially in places with a high cost of living. You can’t know just by looking at someone if they have the means to adequately feed themselves and their families.

I truly feel that it is the responsibility of those of us who are comfortable to help those who struggle. If you’re like me, the problem of hunger in America feels overwhelming, and you don’t know how you can help. Fortunately, there are organizations who do know what to do, and we can support their good work.

Safeway stores partnered with the Hunger Is foundation, which is working to expand school breakfast programs for kids who need it. Over 22 million boys and girls rely on free or reduced-price school lunch, and I’m grateful that they have that meal secured every weekday. However, nearly half of those children don’t have free or reduced-price breakfast available at school. That means they may be coming to school hungry and having to wait until lunch to get food into their growing bodies. How can they learn, play, socialize, and do all the other things they are meant to do at school every morning if they are hungry?

If you would like to learn more about this organization or find out how you can help, just check out their website for more information.

I thought I would write a recipe today that I hope families can make to fill up their kids’ bellies at dinner. It’s a pretty affordable dish if you already have the seasonings you need in your pantry and can buy meat and cheese on sale or in bulk. (You can also check out my post about how I save money on meat.) I hope you enjoy this Chili Pasta Bake, and please do consider supporting the good work Hunger Is is doing if you can!


  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 2 celery sticks, finely chopped
  • 675g/1lb 8oz beef mince
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 tbsp tomato purée
  • 2 x 400g tins chopped tomatoes
  • 350–500ml/12–18fl oz beef stock
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tsp redcurrant jelly
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 250g/9oz chestnut mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh thyme leaves
  • 225g/8oz penne pasta
  • 50g/1¾oz cheddar, grated
  • 30g/1oz Parmesan, grated
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • green or tomato salad, to serve

Heat the oil in a deep frying pan or wide, flameproof casserole. Add the onions and celery and fry over a high heat for about 3 minutes, until starting to soften. Add the mince and fry until browned, breaking it up with two wooden spoons as it browns.

Add the garlic and tomato purée and stir for a few seconds. Stir in the tomatoes, Worcestershire sauce and redcurrant jelly. Add stock (you may need the full amount stock if your pan is very wide) and season with salt and pepper. Cover and simmer over a low heat for 30–35 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 200C/180C Fan/Gas 6.

Melt the butter in a lidded frying pan, add the mushrooms and fry over a high heat for a minute. Cover with a lid and cook for 2 minutes. Remove the lid and fry over a high heat for 2 minutes, until the liquid has evaporated. Add the mushrooms and thyme to the mince and stir well.

Cook the pasta in boiling salted water until al dente. Drain well and run under cold water. Stir the pasta into the mince and check the seasoning.

Spoon into a large, shallow ovenproof dish. Sprinkle with the cheeses and bake for 25–30 minutes, or until golden and bubbling around the edges. Serve piping hot with a green salad or tomato salad.

Recipe Tips

This can be prepared in the dish up to 6 hours ahead, ready to bake and serve. Not suitable for freezing.


Cheesy Bolognese Pasta Bake

This is a cheesy bolognese pasta bake that does not take long to make. It will give a satisfying result that your guests or family will love.

The ingredients are really a little bit up to you. The recipe below has a few elements that we like in our Bolognese sauce.

You may wish to leave some out, or perhaps you would like to add other ingredients?

In any case, I decided to cook this last night. Because I already had most of the ingredients, most of which I needed to use up anyway.

I only need to buy some minced beef in order to make it. It is also another of those meals that you can make in advance and put into the oven when you need it.

Cheesy Bolognese Pasta Bake

Sopranos Baked Ziti Recipe

The inspiration for this dish came from The Sopranos and their Ziti Al Forno (baked ziti) dish. The famous Sopranos baked ziti recipe.

I could not find any ziti pasta in Ireland so I have used Rigatoni, which may be a little bigger, but has a similar shape.

But I suppose you could also use penne or other types of pasta for this recipe.

The recipe is based on a tasty bolognese sauce and includes a layered pasta bake with cheese layered into the pasta layers.

I always think I need to re-watch the entire Sopranos box set whenever I make this :).

We do so love Italian food (even though this must be an American/Italian invention?).

The good thing about using a tubular pasta is that it retains the sauce nicely.

The ingredients below are enough to feed 4-6 people and to fit a 3-litre oven dish. Although I am sure Tony could have polished it off in one or two sittings (RIP James Gandolfini 🙁 ).

I hope you enjoy trying this recipe and please give me some feedback at the bottom of the page if you do!

Ingredients

Pasta. Penne pasta is what you need for this recipe. Usually packed 1 pound per bag. You may also use macaroni. Cook the pasta according to the package in a boiling salted water but you have to undercook it because you are going to bake it. I cooked it under 10 minutes leaving just a little bit of crunch to the pasta.

Ground Beef. 1 pound of lean ground beef is recommended but any ground beef will do. Make sure to remove the excess oil after you brown it. You don’t want a greasy ground beef casserole.

Oil. I usually use olive oil but vegetable oil will do. You just need a tablespoon to brown the ground beef or less if you are using beef with lots of fats.

Onion. You will want to mince them and cook them until translucent.

Garlic. Also minced them fresh garlic.

Marinara Sauce. Out of all the sauces for pasta, this one is my favorite. You need just 2 cups.

Salt and pepper to taste

Brown Sugar. You may skip this ingredient but I like the contrasting flavor of sugar against salt and pepper. The recipe I adapted it from does not have this ingredient so you may choose to omit it. Recipe adapted from Salt and Lavender.

Cheddar Cheese. Shredded cheddar cheese are available in groceries, or you can grate your own if you are used to buying the block cheese. If you don’t have enough cheddar cheese, you can add any cheese you have.

Optional Ingredients


Place mince, onion and garlic in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Mix well.

Spoon mince mixture over the base of an oiled, large roasting pan (20-cup capacity). Top with pasta.

Dissolve stock cube in ½ cup boiling water in a large heatproof jug. Add sauces, gravy powder and 4 ½ cups cold water. Whisk to combine. Pour over pasta. Stir gently.

Cook, uncovered, in a hot oven (200C) for 30 minutes. Remove. Stir in vegetables and cheese. Return to hot oven.

Cook for a further 10 minutes, or until vegetables are soft and most of the liquid has been absorbed. Remove from oven. Stand for 5 minutes before serving.


  • 500g spirali pasta
  • 500g frozen whole green beans
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 350g 5% fat beef steak mince
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 tsp dried mixed herbs
  • 400g chopped tomatoes
  • 440g tomato sauce
  • 2 slices wholemeal bread, torn into small pieces
  • 30g mild cheese, grated

Cook the pasta according to the instructions on the packet. Add the beans for the last 6 minutes, then drain.

Meanwhile, heat the oil in a frying pan over a medium-high heat and cook the mince for 10 minutes, until browned and no pink colour remains. Add the garlic, herbs, tomatoes and sauce, and cook for a further 10-15 minutes.

CHILDREN: Stir the pasta and beans into the beef mixture. Tip into an ovenproof dish, top with the bread pieces and scatter over the cheese.

Grill under a preheated grill until the cheese has melted.

Preheat oven to 200C (180C fan forced). Grease a 3L shallow ovenproof dish with cooking spray. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a large frying pan over high heat. Add mince and cook for 6-7 min, breaking up lumps with a spoon. Drain any excess liquid.

Add the simmer sauce, then add 1/3 cup water to the empty jar and shake well. Add liquid to pan along with vegetables and season with 1 teaspoon cracked black pepper. Bring to the boil then reduce heat to low and cook for 10 min. If making ahead of time, allow mince to cool completely now.

Spoon mince into prepared pan and sprinkle with cheese. Arrange potato gems over the top and bake for 45-50 min or until gems are golden brown. Serve with side salad.
