Sweet Potato Pasta Bake

Serves 4
Syns per serving: 1.5 Syns on Extra Easy and Green
• 350gm dried macaroni
• 1 head broccoli, trimmed and cut into small florets
• 1 large sweet potato, peeled and cut into small chunks
• 300gm low fat natural cottage cheese
• small handful of finely chopped fresh chives
• 2 eggs, beaten
• 4tbsp quark
• 150gm cherry tomatoes, halved
• 40gm reduced-fat Cheddar cheese, grated (6 Syns)
1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/Fan 180°/Gas 6.
2. Cook the pasta according to the packet instructions, adding the broccoli and sweet potato 4 minutes before the end of the cooking time.
3. Meanwhile, mix together the cottage cheese, chives, eggs and quark and stir well.
4. Drain the pasta, stir in the cottage cheese mixture and tomatoes and tip the whole mixture into a large ovenproof dish. Scatter over the Cheddar cheese and bake for 20-25 minutes until golden.
This dish would work well with roasted vegetables such as peppers, onions, butternut squash or courgettes - stir them into the cooked pasta before baking in the oven.
