How do I make it ?
Heat a dash of oil in a deep lidded frying pan or saucepan. Add onion and celery and cook over a low heat until onion softens. Stir in Wattie’s Tomato Paste and cook a further minute.
Add pumpkin, carrot, kumara and drained Wattie’s Cannellini Beans. Pour over Wattie’s Savoury Tomatoes and ½ can of water. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat cover and simmer 25-30 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Stir in chopped parsley.
Preheat oven to 190°C (fan assisted). Transfer vegetables and sauce to a lasagne-style dish. Top with mashed potato and sprinkle over grated cheese. Bake for 20-30 minutes until potatoes are golden and filling hot.
Cook potatoes in lightly salted boiling water until tender. Drain well. Mash potatoes and mix in butter and milk until smooth and creamy.
Kraft Kitchen Tips!
* Product available in New World and Pak’n Save.
Make sure you don’t let the sauce reduce too much as the vegetables will continue to absorb sauce as they cool.
Add a dollop of your favourite pesto to the vegetable filling if wished before topping with mashed potato.
Add ½ tsp Gregg’s Ground Cumin and ½ tsp Gregg’s Ground Coriander to the softened onion if wished.
This recipe also makes a great side dish – serve with crumbed or grilled chicken.
Substitute the winter vegetables for red onions, red and green capsicums, courgettes, eggplant and frozen peas which need to be added with the parsley at the end of cooking.
Replace the chopped parsley with a good dollop of basil pesto.
Top with mashed kumara in place of the potato.
Swap It Out
Try switching out the Wattie's Cannellini Beans for Wattie's Pinto, Red Kidney or Lentils.
You can also try different tomatoes in place of the Wattie's Savoury Tomatoes such as Wattie’s Indian Style, Wattie’s Mexican Style, or Wattie’s Italian Style Tomatoes.
