Tip

 

* You can use the pasta of your choice, I prefer Gluten Free, Spelt Pasta or Wholemeal.

* Feel free to substitute chicken for tuna or peas for both or either of the green vegetables.

* I always make double this recipe as I have a large family and a large Bessimer deep dish. To do this, simply prep all ingredients as necessary, remembering to do the cheese in a few batches so as to not overload your machine. Bake for 20-25 minutes.

    No problem. Just use your favourite cooking oil instead. Some coconut oils have a defined taste so I use good quality organic cold pressed coconut oil. Thanks for your comment tmrc_emoticons.)

    Thought this was Nice

    however personal choice I didn't like the taste of the coconut in the dish and think it would be better with just olive oil, which I will try next time.

  • I always used canned

    Submitted by Natalicious on 13. May 2015 - 14:51.

    I always used canned (chopped) tomatoes but you can certainly use fresh ones. I have tweaked this recipe today so you are welcome to try the new easier version if you like tmrc_emoticons.)

  • I've tweaked the recipe so

    Submitted by Natalicious on 13. May 2015 - 14:49.

    I've tweaked the recipe so there are now 4 leaves of spinach or kale. It is just the actual leaf of a silverbeet or a kale stalk with the leaf. I tend to just remove the stem altogether. You can also substitute with baby spinach leaves or any green vegetable you like tmrc_emoticons.)

    Sorry about the delay in response. I had actually no idea anybody had tried my recipe at all!

    Great ideas. I love how you can substitue so many other things with this recipe and change the flavour! Leek and mushrooms would be really nice. I must try this!

    Nice one! You substituted really well tmrc_emoticons.)

    I took your advice and reduced the vege stock and tweaked the whole recipe a bit. I have even noted doubling this recipe to help you get more out of making this dish. It's one of our favourites too! Thanks for your feedback, I really appreciate it tmrc_emoticons.)

    Yes definitely sub out the tuna with chicken! Maybe before you start prepping though you might want to steam it in the varoma for 20mins and then shred it with a fork?? Or ive never tried it before but you could possible shred it on a .5 sec turbo pulse??

  • My husband and 5 kids, aged

    Submitted by ThermoMum - Jude Blake on 16. July 2014 - 19:49.

    My husband and 5 kids, aged 11 down to 2, absolutely demolished this tonight. Good one! I sprinkled two weet bix on top with the cheese because I couldn't be bothered with bread crumbs (so lazy I know, but I didn't have a clean bowl!) and used 300g of pasta shells and only about 200g of cheese. I think I'd lessen the TMX stock paste next time and maybe throw in some peas, too.

    Made this tonight & it was yum! I made Italian breadcrumbs today (from EDC), so mixed these with cheese for the top layer...worked really well. I added a small tin of tomatoes where it says to add tomatoes, and that worked well.

    Just cooked this for dinner and it was fantastic! Went such a long way as well - easy, quick and healthy. I added  two average sized tomatoes as well as the paste. This is going on the weekly menu for sure.

    In step 5 you mention adding tomatoes as well as tomato paste but you haven't got any tomatoes in the ingredient list, is it fresh tomatoes you are using or tinned?
