Easy Mediterranean Pasta Bake with Degustabox

Easy Mediterranean Pasta Bake with Chorizo

Degustabox is a monthly subscription food box service, where every month you're sent a brand new box of between 9 and 14 goodies to try. I find it's a great way for discovering new brands and products and my children this month have been converted to the Happy Monkey Kids Smoothies! Rory declaring them 'the best ever'.

I however, was drawn to the Barilla Wholewheat Pasta and Barilla Vegetable Pasta Sauce and decided to make a filling and hearty pasta bake with them. There's no need to precook the pasta for this either so it's literally mix everything in a bowl, pour into a dish and bung it in the oven kind of meal. I love easy food like this, especially on a busy weeknight.
