Spicy Arrabbiata & Cheese Pasta Bake (Vegetarian)



Prep time

5 min.

Cook time

20 min.



1 Jar of Bay’s Kitchen Spicy Arrabbiata Stir-in Sauce

160g Gluten free pasta (such as brown rice pasta)

40g Strong cheddar cheese, grated

40g Mozzarella, torn into chunks

Small bunch of basil

Flaky sea salt

  1. Preheat your oven to 200°C / 180°C fan.
  2. Fill a pan 2/3 full with water and bring to the boil. Add the pasta and cook for 8-10 minutes (check the packet instructions in case these differ) – make sure that it’s on the al dente side. Save a mug of cooking water and then drain the pasta well.
  3. In the same saucepan, pour in your jar of Bay’s Kitchen Spicy Arrabbiata Stir-in Sauce, rinsing the jar out with a little water and adding that into the pan too. Cook gently for a couple of minutes, until warmed through.
  4. Gently stir the pasta into the sauce, followed by half of the cheddar and mozzarella. If the sauce feels too thick, add a splash of the cooking water which you set aside earlier. 
  5. Tip the pasta into a small baking dish and sprinkle over the remaining cheese. Bake for 10 minutes, or until bubbling.
  6. Top with fresh basil leaves and a sprinkle of salt and serve with a crunchy green salad.
