Fusilli Cheddar Bake

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by mumoftwo

An old recipe that my mum used to cook when we were younger. A quick and easy twist on Mac'n'cheese. You could make it lighter by using all low-fat products.

Used cream of celery soup for this recipe & well as rotini pasta & mix of slightly steamed fresh veggies (peas, corn, carrots), then followed the recipe! A very tasty comfort food in my book! Thanks for posting the recipe! [Made & reviewed for one of my adopted chefs in this Spring's PAC]
