Got this out of an old magazine. Here's my 'tweaked' version!

Serves 4

1/2 syn per serving plus
1 HEX A or 1 HEX B on Green/EE

Ingredients:

Roasting veg (I used red onion, peppers, garlic, mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, courgette)
28g sun dried tomatoes, rehydrated & chopped (1.5 syns)
340g/12oz dried macaroni
a few spring onions, chopped
chives, snipped
126g reduced fat cheddar, grated
28g parmesan, grated
2 eggs
500g pot very low fat natural or greek yogurt
1 tsp wholegrain mustard (0.5 syn)
couple of dashes of worcester sauce
Quorn fillets or meatballs (optional)

1) Roast the veg with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar and Frylight.

2) Cook the macaroni for 10 mins. Drain and toss with the roasted veg & sun dried tomatoes. Season and pour into a lasagne dish (or large deep dish).

3) In a bowl, mix the eggs, yogurt, mustard, worcester, spring onion and cheddar, salt & pepper. Pour over the macaroni. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and chives.

4) Bake at 220 for 15-20 mins until lightly golden and bubbling. Serve with additional veg and/or Quorn fillets/meatballs.

Thanks! It's one of my new once-a-weekers until I get sick of it. I just love the flavours and it freezes well!

StaceyUk, I have just finished eating (eating early to prevent temptation at the cinema in an hour!)-gotta say this is lovely!! I had it with some Quorn Italian style meatballs, but to be honest, its more than good enough on its own!! Thanks again !

Stacey, you're just so good at this.. :D I read and see your pics and I just need to make everything... Your cauli and cheese mash thingy you posted the other day is doing my head in...I couldn't stop thinking about it at work yesterday..How sad is that, I guess it's a change from my usual thoughts of Richard Gere :p... Today I've ordered in my weekly shop an extra cauli to make it tomorrow and I'm going to eat it all to myself. :eatdrink012: Will be making this mac and cheese too... it looks delicious.

Thanks for the brilliant recipes and ideas you give us...

So glad you enjoyed!! It's definitely one of my fave meals! The meatballs sound lovely with it. Will try that next time!
