Syn Free Spicy Cajun Pork and Pasta Bake | Slimming World

I’ve made a fair few pasta bakes, like this Syn Free Spicy Cajun Pork and Pasta Bake, over the years.



For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb 👍

They are a simple, low cost way to feed the whole family, but without compromising on nutritional value. Comfort food at its best, although before slimming world, the ones I made would have contained a fair amount of syns/fat!


As the weather has turned much colder, it inspired me to create this warming, rustic, midweek favourite, with a spicy kick, but without busting the syn bank, or your bank account!


If you wish, you can make it ahead of time, and just bake on the night!

    1. Hi Sharon
      Yes, the recipe is suitable for freezing. We’ve now added symbols to the bottom of each recipe card to indicate if they’re suitable for freezing, dairy free, gluten free etc.

  1. Well I followed the recipe to the letter, unless you count that I had defrosted turkey mince not pork by mistake, didn’t have any frozen vegetables so chopped and part cooked carrots, peppers, and mushrooms to add to the mixture. Didn’t have enough fresh chillies so did half and half fresh and dried. I then added more Cajun seasoning as we like it quite spicy lol. It was still lovely mind you 😂
    As this was intended as 3 meals for 2 of us I split the meat mixture into 3 portions before adding the pasta, cheese and tomatoes and froze the other 2 at this stage. I thought this way I could either add a different pasta or even rice when we have the remaining dishes .
