3. Steam or microwave cauliflower and broccoli florets until just cooked. Drain well.

4. Heat a dash of oil in a frying pan and over medium heat, fry the onion and bacon until cooked, but not browned.

5. In a bowl mix together cooked pasta, cauliflower and broccoli, bacon and onion. Stir through HEINZ [SERIOUSLY] GOOD™ Four Cheeses Pasta Bake Sauce.

Tips

  • Replace bacon with ham or chorizo if you like a spicy kick.
  • Use only cauliflower if preferred.
  • The size of the spirals will determine how much is required. Large spirals tend to hydrate more than the smaller spirals so you may need to increase the amount if you want to use small pasta spirals.
