These days I am all about simple food that is:

a) freezer-friendly

b) toddler-friendly

c) tastes good (obviously!!), and;

d) can be made with basic ingredients (preferably those that you already have at home!)

Soooooo… I bring to you my Cheesy Macaroni & Vegetable Frittata Bake. And I promise that it ticks all of those boxes!!

We ALWAYS have pasta in the cupboard. Actually I lie… we always have about 6 packets of different pasta sitting in the cupboard!  I certainly love a yummy pasta for dinner (like my favourite 4 ingredient carbonara or my creamy chicken pesto pasta), but my little Will isn’t so much of a pasta fan…. well not on it’s own anyway!

But this Cheesy Macaroni & Vegetable Frittata Bake solves that problem entirely… it’s got all the yummy pasta-goodness going on, but it’s in a cheesy-eggy-frittata-style bake. Aren’t kids funny how they don’t like something when it’s served one way, but LOVE it a different way!?

I used chopped carrot, corn, peas and capsicum in my frittata bake, but you could absolutely use any other vegetables you have at home. I also added some ham for extra flavour, but bacon would be just as delicious (or leave it out entirely for a vegetarian option).

This Cheesy Macaroni & Vegetable Frittata Bake really is one of those super simple recipes that you can chuck everything into a bowl together, mix it up and pop it in the oven to bake. No fuss, hardly any dishes… just easy and yummy food.

Ooh and just a word of warning, this makes a BIG batch! We ate it for dinner, then lunch the following day and there was still SOOOO much leftover. You can freeze it in an airtight container for up to 2 months – which is super handy for a quick ‘grab and go’ lunch.
