Beef and Feta Pasta Bake

Beef and Feta Pasta Bake

I had some leftover slow cooker bolognese and decided to make a greek inspired pasta bake with some feta and additional spices added to the meat. This would easily serve 6 -  with some green vegetables.

BEEF AND FETA PASTA BAKE


| Serves: 6  | Prep Time: 20 Minutes | Cook Time: 40 Minutes | Total Time: 1 Hour |


Ingredients:

  • 3 Cups of leftover meat sauce (or just make from fresh)
  • 1/4 TSP Cinnamon
  • 1/4 TSP Ground Cloves
  • Pinch of Chili Powder
  • 500g Pasta (I had Fusilli)
  • 50g Butter
  • 50g Flour
  • 600ml Milk
  • 200g Feta, cubed
  • 150g Cheddar, grated

Instructions:

  • Step 1: Preheat oven to 180c.
  • Step 2: Put the meat sauce into a bowl and mix in the cinnamon. ground cloves and chili.
  • Step 3: Make the cheese sauce by melting the butter, then adding the flour to make a roux, stir for 2 minutes. Gradually add in the milk and bring to a simmer for 5 minutes or until sauce has thickened. Take off the heat, stir in the cheese and some salt and pepper and leave to one side.
  • Step 4: Cook the pasta according to instructions and mix half the pasta in with the meat sauce and half in with the feta cheese sauce.
  • Step 5: In a large (30cm x 30cm approx) ovenproof dish layer the meat and pasta sauce on the botton then spoon over cheese and pasta sauce.
  • Step 6: Bake in the oven for 30 minutes until bubbling.
  • Step 7: Serve with green vegetables.
