  • I made this yesterday when was lacking inspiration and didn't want to go to the shops. Everything I needed was already in the fridge and pantry.
  • If you don’t have vintage cheese at hand, mix parmesan and tasty cheese together instead.
  • This bake was so popular – the kids asked for seconds and hubby was disappointed that there wasn't more for lunch leftovers.
  • I served this with salad, but green and yellow vegies would be good too.
