Garlic Mushroom and Spinach Pasta Bake

I love pasta and fancied making a creamy pasta dish using mushrooms and spinach as I had lots of each to use up (I bought lots reduced!) so this is what I came up with and it was delicious!

250g dry pasta shapes (I prefer fusilli)
300g Mushrooms (Quartered)
1 large onion (peeled and sliced)
80g Baby Spinach
180g 50% less fat cheddar cheese (grated)
1 mushroom or vegetable stock pot
200ml boiling water
250g Quark
5 Cloves of Garlic (peeled and crushed)
Low Calorie cooking spray


1. Preheat the oven to 200’c and boil pasta in a large pan according to packet instructions and drain.

2. Meanwhile spray a frying pan with low calorie cooking spray and fry the garlic, onion and mushrooms until tender but not too soft as they will cook further in the oven.

3. Make the stock using the 200ml of boiling water and stock pot.

4. In a large ovenproof dish mix together the cooked pasta, the onion, garlic and mushrooms from the frying pan, the quark, the baby spinach, the stock, and 120g of the cheese.

5. Sprinkle the remaining 60g of cheese over the top and bake in the oven for 30 minutes.] or until golden on top and hot throughout.
