Mum’s pasta bake recipe | Gluten-free and super easy recipe!

This delish recipe is brought to you by our Mum and also Supabarn. It’s Mum’s old recipe but we used epic delish as gluten-free pasta from our faves Supabarn. If you are in Canberra or Sydney be sure to check them out!

There is something magical about a pasta bake recipe on a chilly winter’s night. Maybe it’s the carbs, maybe it’s the cheese… who knows but it’s bloody good!

We used buckwheat pasta but feel free to use whatever gluten-free pasta you like. You could even use zoodles instead, we’ve done this with our spag bake recipe

And if you are dairy free, simply skip the cheese.

We don’t eat cheese and gluten-free pasta every day once in a little while is fun and oh so yum!

Let us know if you whip up this deliciousness for dinner and send us a photo on Instagram! YAY.

Always merrymaking,

Emma + Carla
