Bolognese Pasta Bake

This Bolognese Pasta Bake is a delicious alternative to spaghetti bolognese with a tasty creamy cheese sauce on top. The ultimate in family home cooking!

As the weather is starting to cool as we go into Autumn, hearty comfort food is most definitely back on my menu!

I made this Bolognese Pasta Bake on a whim last week. I had all the ingredients for Spaghetti Bolognese but fancied something a little bit different.

So I turned it into a pasta bake instead and made a creamy sauce to top it.

Once I’d made the classic bolognese sauce, I added it to a large oven dish and topped it with cooked pasta.

For the sauce I mixed together creme fraiche and milk, poured it on top and then finally added some grated cheddar cheese.

It all then goes into the oven for 15 minutes where the cheese will melt and brown giving a lovely crispy top to the pasta.

If you try my Bolognese Pasta Bake recipe please do leave me a comment and a star rating below. You can also share your pictures with me on on Instagram.  I always love to see your creations!
