Quick and Easy Cheesy Pasta and Bean Casserole

User Rating 4 Star Rating (9 Reviews)


A super quick and easy vegetarian pasta casserole recipe. This is a great way to use up any leftover cooked pasta you have lying around. Just "dump" a few ingredients into a dish and bake. Although you do have to cook the pasta beforehand, this pasta casserole only has five ingredients, so it really can be a time saver on a busy night.

It tastes great & is very filling. Just wondering is it suitable for freezing? And is it safe to reheat the day after you bake it? Thanks
