I do not recommend this, was very let down - the sauce tastes fake and actually made me feel a bit sick. A waste of $5 spent just on the pinenuts! My partner didn't like it either, our 2 year old daughter ate most of hers so that was something.

not technically a 'bake' but it tastes lovely, I also added a little extra thickened cream to make it more saucy.
