With winter around the corner, it’s always great to have a solid veggie bake in your recipe book.

And because we’re all in need of some comfort at this time of year, the pasta makes a welcome addition to the recipe.

This particular veggie bake is a combination of many various recipes that I’ve tried over the years and a few experiments with adding pasta to the combination. I’ve served this bake with braais and home-cooked mains, but also devoured it as a meal on its own.
