As we move ever closer to the beginning of Autumn (Fall), pumpkin recipes are beginning to pop up all over the internet, along with apple & cinnamon, oats, sweet potato, etc. However, Autumn doesn’t actually start until Thursday 22nd!

Shops always seem to have Summer clothes for sale in the middle of winter, Halloween costumes in July, Christmas chocolates on the shelves at the beginning of Autumn, and Easter eggs at Christmas. Which means you have to be 3 months ahead with everything. Including food.
In fact, it might as well already be Autumn now.

But I’m not complaining! I love the flavours that show up around this time – sweet apple, warm cinnamon, comforting oats, and earthy pumpkin.

Enter: This Healthy Cheesy Mushroom Pasta Bake.

Today’s recipe is perfect for this transition between Summer and Autumn.

Just cook the pasta in boiling water and cook the mushrooms in a frying pan, then toss them in a pan with cream cheese and Greek yoghurt.

After that, transfer to a large baking dish, sprinkle with gluten-free-oat-Greek-yoghurt-crumbs, and you’re good to go! For some extra vegetable goodness, I placed sliced courgette on top, as well as some more cheese.

Then bake the dish in the oven for 40 minutes, until it’s golden (and smells amazing!).

With a creamy cheese sauce and a crispy crumble topping, this healthy cheesy mushroom pasta bake is an easy and delicious dinner. It’s gluten-free, and you can also make it dairy-free by using dairy-free alternatives to Greek yoghurt and cream cheese.

Don’t like mushrooms? No worries! Just leave them out, or swap for a different vegetable of your choice. Not only is this versatile recipe great year-round, it’s also good for adapting to suit your preferences. You could add meat, chickpeas, sweetcorn, cauliflower – whatever you like! The soft crumble topping adds a pie-like texture that pairs beautifully with the pasta and cheesy sauce.

Healthy Cheesy Mushroom Pasta Bake with Crumble Topping. Gluten-free!

This Healthy Cheesy Mushroom Pasta Bake is easy to make for a filling and tasty dinner. Including 2 vegetables and NO butter/oil, this meal is gluten-free and can be dairy-free!

Ingredients

    For the Pasta & Sauce:
  • •350g gluten-free pasta (or enough for 4 people)
  • •2-4 portobello mushrooms, chopped (150g - 300g chopped mushrooms)
  • •300g Greek yoghurt*
  • •200g cream cheese*
  • •(optional) spices & herbs of choice, eg. coriander, cumin, pepper, paprika
  • For the Cheesy Crumble Topping:
  • •3 tbsp oats (certified gluten-free oats)
  • •2 tbsp buckwheat flour (or plain gluten-free flour blend)
  • •1/2 tbsp Greek yoghurt*
  • •4 tbsp grated cheese
  • •1 courgette (zucchini)
  • •3 tbsp melted butter (optional: helps turn golden)
  • •Extra grated cheese

Instructions

    To make the Pasta & Sauce:
  1. First, grease a large baking dish (about 12x8inch) and preheat the oven to 180°C (160°C fan, 350°F, gas 4).
  2. Rinse the mushrooms in cold water, then chop them into smallish cubes.
  3. Cook the pasta in boiling water, in a large pan over a high heat for about 10 minutes (or as per the packet instructions).
  4. While the pasta is cooking, drizzle a small amount of oil in a medium-sized frying pan and saute the mushrooms at medium heat for about 10 minutes, moving them around with a spatula every so often.
  5. Once the pasta is cooked, drain the water off and leave the pasta in the colander.
  6. In the empty pan (still hot from cooking the pasta), add 300g Greek yoghurt and 200g cream cheese, stirring until no lumps remain.
  7. Tip the pasta back into the pan with the sauce and stir. Then add the cooked mushrooms, followed by any spices & herbs of choice.
  8. In a small bowl, mix the oats, buckwheat flour and grated cheese. Add the Greek yoghurt and mix using fingertips until the mixture looks like breadcrumbs.
  9. Chop the courgette (zucchini) into less than 1/2cm thick coin shaped slices.
  10. Pour the pasta mixture from the pan into the greased baking dish, and smooth flat.
  11. Sprinkle the oat & flour breadcrumbs evenly on top of the pasta, then lay the courgette (zucchini) slices on top of that.
  12. Drizzle melted butter over the top (this helps to turn the top lovely and golden), followed by extra grated cheese.
  13. Bake in the preheated oven for about 40 minutes, or until the top is golden and cooked through.
  14. Leave to cool for at least 10 minutes, then serve and enjoy!
