Creamy vegetarian sausage pasta bake

I was invited to take part in the Campbell’s Condensed Soup Blogger Challenge. The challenge is to invent a recipe using a tin of Campbell’s Soup and ingredients from a store-cupboard list of:

  • Pasta
  • Rice
  • Potatoes
  • Onions
  • Peppers
  • Kidney beans
  • Sweetcorn
  • Broccoli
  • Tuna
  • Chicken
  • Sausages
  • Cheese

and a soup from their range:

  • Cream of Tomato
  • Cream of Mushroom
  • Cream of Chicken
  • Cream of Celery
  • Vegetable
  • Low Fat Chicken
  • Low Fat Mushroom

So, I asked for a tin of Campbell’s Mushroom Soup and decided to make a pasta bake with sausages. The Meat Eater gave me a funny look when I told him, as he didn’t think pasta went with sausages but you get meatballs with spaghetti and meat in lasagne, so why not sausages with pasta shapes, eh?

He stopped being scared after he tasted it, it was delicious. My photos don’t do it justice, unfortunately, so I’m not expecting to win the challenge.
