ONE-TRAY BAKED SPAGHETTI

THIS IS AMAZING. Spaghetti cooked from scratch in the oven – literally bung all the stuff in a tray (including the raw spaghetti) and 30 minutes later you have dinner ready!

For the cookalong we’ll be doing this topped with chunks of sausage meat, you can use meatballs, fish fillets or top with lots of vegetables for a vegan alternative.

SERVES 4 

NOTE: OK, the key to this recipe is for the tray you cook it in to be the right size; you want one that *just* fits the spaghetti / pasta so it fills the bottom of the tray nice and snug. My tray is about 10 inches by 8.

Serving Suggestion:

  • Bread for the sauce of course!

What you need:

  • Baking tray (just big enough to fit the pasta in)
  • Oven – preheated 200c FAN
  • Measuring jug

Ingredients:

  • 300g spaghetti (or other pasta)
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 4 tbsp oil
  • 1 cup/250ml passata / or tinned chopped tomatoes
  • 650ml stock/water + a splash
  • 2 tbsp tomato puree (or ketchup at a push!)
  • 6 sausages – or swap for fish/seafood or chopped veg for vegan option
  • OPTIONAL – basil for garnish
  • OPTIONAL – cheese to top at the end
