This is a delicious Pasta Bake, that can be served as a main dish OR a side dish. You may wish to add some Meat OR Chicken, but I like it just Mushrooms. Today I used common Cup Mushrooms, but you can use your favourite Mushrooms. I recommend to use a generous amount.


4 Servings


200g Pasta *I used 2 heaped-cups Spiral Pasta
Salt for cooking Pasta
400 to 500g Mushrooms
1 Onion *thinly sliced
1 clove Garlic *finely chopped
2 tablespoons Oil
1 tablespoon Fresh Thyme Leaves *plus extra for topping
*Note: You can use other Herbs of your choice, but my choice for this dish is Thyme.
30g Butter
2 tablespoons Plain Flour
1 cup Chicken Stock OR Vegetable Stock
200ml Sour Cream
Salt & Black Pepper
100g (1 cupful) shredded Tasty Cheese (Cheddar) *OR Cheese of your choice

  1. Clean the Mushrooms and slice them thickly. Prepare other ingredients.
  2. Cook Pasta in boiling salted water according to the instruction on the package. Drain when cooked.
  3. Preheat oven to 200℃.
  4. Heat Oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat, cook Onion and Garlic for a few minutes. Add Mushrooms and Thyme, and cook until Mushrooms are cooked.
  5. Make a room on the pan, melt Butter in the space, add Flour to mix with the melted Butter. Then add Stock and stir well.
  6. Add Sour Cream and mix well. Season with Salt and Pepper. The amount of Salt depends on the saltiness of the Stock and Butter you use. *Note: Today I added 1/2 teaspoon Salt.
  7. Combine the Sauce and drained Pasta. Spoon into a baking dish, scatter shredded Cheese and bake for 20 minutes OR until golden.

  8. Sprinkle with some Fresh Thyme Leaves and serve.
