The traditional version of this Greek dish can be time-consuming to cook, with layers of ground meat and béchamel sauce. Our version is made up of just two layers; meaty sauce and pasta on the bottom, white sauce and pasta on top. This is a lot easier than the traditional method but still retains the delicious, authentic flavours! Serve with mixed salad if you don't mind the extra 15 calories per portion.

‘Pasta Bolognese topped with Macaroni Cheese! It's genius! I got 6 large foil tray portions out of the recipe, which will do 2 meals per tray with salad because it is so filling!’
