Recipe- One Pot Penne Pizza Bake (Slimming World Friendly)

 

This is the ultimate in one pot pizza bakes & gives you all the carb loaded satisfaction of pizza without the guilt! 

One pot serves 8 slices so enough for 4 people, loaded with cheese & toppings of your choice. I went for ham, mushrooms & extra cherry tomatoes with abit of extra basil sprinkled on top. 

I served my slice of Penne Pizza Slice with a side of salad, making it a really healthy meal even if it doesn't look like it! 

This meal takes about 5 minutes prep time & 30 minutes cooking time.
