Vegetable Macaroni Bake

Recipe by Kitzy

This is an adaption of a recipe I found in the Oxfam Vegetarian Cookbook. It's really easy to assemble, and you can make it earlier in the day and just pop it in the oven half an hour before you want to serve it. It goes great with a nice, crisp salad.

Delicious and also very adaptable! We skipped the beans (not sure what butter beans are) and used cornstarch for the corn flour (I hope this is correct) for a very enjoyable weeknight supper. Thanks for sharing!
