Spicy Tomato & Courgette Protein Pasta Bake

Now that we are smack bang in the middle of the coolest months, dinner time calls for a more winter focused menu, and there is nothing quite like a wholesome pasta bake to warm you up from the inside.

There's not one, but two awesome ingredients that we've smuggled into this dish, and the kids will be none the wiser! The first awesome ingredient is our Protein Pasta, our revolutionary pasta makes it so easy to get some extra protein where there isn't usually that much. The second is Courgette. Ever tried to feed the little ones courgette? Didn't go so well huh? Well by grating it up and mixing it through the rest of the ingredients, it goes totally un-noticed! - Parenting WIN!

This recipe is great because you can totally add any of your favourite ingredients to customise it to your liking. Hold back on the chilli flakes for the little ones

Our revolutionary Protein Pasta is made with 10% Cricket Flour. All you have to do is plop it in a pot of boiling water with some salt, and voilà - high protein pasta, with all the benefits Cricket Flour, ready on your plate. All you have to do is pair it with your favourite recipes, and we have even taken the hard work out of that by giving you our precious, tasty recipes that we have been cooking for years!
