Pasta Bake with Sausages or Bacon


500g pasta (penne or rigatoni is best)
500g good quality sausages or 250g bacon
2 tins tomatoes
2 mozarella (low fat is ok if you prefer)
100g cheddar or parmesan (whichever you prefer)
1tsp oregano or basil
4 tbs olive oil
Heat oven to 175C/gas mark 4 - Cook the sausages/bacon in the oven for 20 minutes in the pan/dish you intend to serve the pasta bake in
Cook pasta in boiling salted water for 7 minutes then drain
Meanwhile heat the tinned tomatoes with the olive oil and the herbs with salt and pepper to taste
Drain and chop the mozarella into small cubes
Grate the cheddar or parmesan
Chop the sausages or bacon into chunks/pieces
Mix the tomatoes and the pasta then add the cheeses and the sausages and stir well. Sprinkle with a little grated cheese
Bake for 20 minutes and serve with crisp green salad
Variation: I sometimes add broccoli or cauliflower to the bake - just add it to the pasta whilst it is cooking
