Easy Bacon Pasta Bake (using potato bake sauce)

Dboz Lyfe


I rarely have leftover pasta to make pasta bakes, so this recipe is an easy way to make an easy-to-prep meal using store bought potato scallop sauce and uncooked pasta.

You can adjust the amount of bacon you use, I just find it an easy flavouring to throw into the dish.

This pasta bake can be very rich and although I serve it as a main in my household (its a bacony treat for us) so serve with lots of fresh tomato or as a side to barbecued meats.
