Remember the other day I gave you Stove Top Pulled Pork? Well you are going to just love this Pulled Pork Pasta Bake.
Here on this side of the atlantic, Pulled Pork is hugely popular, pretty much anywhere you go you can be assured Pulled Pork will be on the menu.
One dish I keep seeing is Pulled Pork Mac and Cheese, which gave me the inspiration for this Pulled Pork Pasta Bake. It's not quite a mac and cheese, but it's cheese and oh. so. good. My kids literally cleared their plates. The whole family loved this dish.
For the pulled pork, you can either use leftovers of my Stove Top Pulled Pork or my Slow Cooker Pulled Pork. Either will be perfect. Once you have the pulled pork, the other ingredients are easy, it's just a case of mixing together, topping with cheese and baking in the oven and you are done.
I served with a nice mixed salad to get plenty of speed food into my meal, but any speed vegetable sides will work.
I recently bought some awesome little mini cast iron pans, so I did the Pulled Pork pasta bake as 4 single serving dishes - so cute. You can either do the same in 4 mini dishes, or do a big pasta bake in one oven proof dish.
If you want to make this gluten free, choose a gluten free pasta, my favorite is brown rice (it's the closest in taste an texture to regular pasta)
