Celina Lovejoy's Review | Rating

Really nice! Didn't put celery in (I think I used mixed veg) and also added bacon. But I couldn't find the Potato Bake cans, only Pasta Bake? Still worked, but a little strange that the supermarket didn't have them...

Made this for dinner awhile ago, it was so "YUMMY", my son who loves the cheese sauce version loved it. I thank you for sharing this recipe.Certainly recommend and will make again.

This is such an easy recipe to make, and using the pasta bake & milk mixture sauce instead of making my own cheese sauce is definitely a time saving bonus. I've also found replacing the ham with a small punnet of bacon bits from the deli works well.
