We all need quick meals up our sleeves for those busy weekday nights where the kids are hungry, we are running late from work or activities pick up and everything is in a shambles.
This 5 Ingredient sausage and vegetable pasta bake is a favourite in our house. It only takes about 30 minutes to make and the leftovers make a great work lunch the following day.
All you need to do is grab five simple ingredients that you usually have in your fridge and pantry.

5 Ingredient sausage and vegetable pasta bake
For this 5 ingredient sausage and vegetable pasta bake you will need:
(you can also include onion if you want but my kids don’t like it)
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celsius.
Cook the pasta in boiling water on the stove until soft.
Add frozen vegetables to boiling pasta about 5 minutes before the pasta is ready.
Cut the tips off the sausage and squeeze the assuage sausage from the lining into a fry pan with some oil. (you can also chop the sausages if you prefer but removing the casing makes them a bit like meatballs).
Fry the sausages until brown then add pasta sauce. Feel free to add garlic, Italian herbs, chilli, or whatever your family prefers flavour-wise.
Cook until sausages are cooked through.
Drain pasta and veggies and pour into a baking dish. (I’m fond of my old Pyrex, but any deep dish will do).
Add sausage and sauce mixture on top and stir through until combined.
Spread mozzarella cheese over the top and bake for about 20 minutes, or until the cheese is golden brown.
Serve with a side salad or whatever takes your fancy!
What’s your quick and easy, go-to dinner?
