This is a great pasta bake with a creamy flavour like beef stroganoff. It's wonderfully convenient because you make it the day ahead or even freeze it until you need to bake it.


Serves: 9 

  • 750g lean beef mince
  • 250g fresh pasta
  • 250g container sour cream
  • 250g cream cheese, softened
  • 60g grated cheddar cheese
  • 6 spring onions, thinly sliced
  • 500g tomato pasta sauce
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 2 tablespoons grated Cheddar cheese
