Black bean pasta bake

Ingredients (serves 2)

  • 160g red lentil penne pasta (uncooked)
  • 1 x 400g tin of black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 x 350g jar of tomato and basil pasta sauce
  • 160g of broccoli
  • Cheese for topping (optional)



1 Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celsius. You will need a large dish to hold the pasta that is appropriate to put in the oven.
2 Boil the pasta according to pack instructions and stir often to prevent it from burning or sticking at the bottom.
3 You can then cut the broccoli into small florets and add it to the boiling pasta for 1 minute before draining it.
4 Drain the pasta and rinse under cold water. Pour the pasta into your pasta dish and stir in the tomato sauce.
5 Drain the black beans and rinse with water. Then add these to the pasta dish and mix all the ingredients.
6 Sprinkle with cheese.
7 Bake the dish in the oven for 15-20 minutes. This can depend on how crispy you want the top of the pasta (I like mine crispy).
8 Remove the dish from the oven and serve up instantly. Enjoy!
