I love delicious, easy meals like this boerewors pasta bake.
It gets the whole family excited – just look at all that gooey cheese, who wouldn’t be happy about coming home to that!
Here is how you can make it.
Boerewors Pasta Bake
300 g pasta of your choice, I used Farfalle
1 coil boerewors
2 tablespoons olive oil
400g store-bought marinara sauce
3 tablespoons fresh chopped basil
2 cups mature cheddar, grated
Cook the pasta in salted boiling water, then drain and reserve 1 cup pasta cooking water.
Heat a pan, then add the olive oil to heat.
Pinch pieces of boerewors out of the casings, roll into balls and fry till brown, and set aside.
Simmer the marinara sauce over medium heat. Add the meatballs to the sauce, coat them in the sauce and simmer for about 5 minutes.
Combine meatballs and sauce with the cooked pasta and mix well.
Transfer to a casserole dish and top with cheese.
Bake at 200 degrees Celcius for 20 minutes or until cheese has melted and is bubbly.
Serve hot, topped with chopped fresh basil.
