Step 1

Preheat oven to 200°C

Step 2

Pour sauce into a 1.5l ovenproof dish.
Fill jar to top of label with cold water. Add this to the ovenproof dish and give it a quick stir

Step 3

Splosh in the pasta, ensuring it is all coated in sauce.

Step 4

Bake for 25 mins.
During this time, grate the cheese and have a pinch as a 'tester'. Call your eldest daughter into the room for a second opinion.

Step 5

Once the 25 mins are up, remove from the oven. Stir thoroughly.

Step 6

Sprinkle 100g cheese over the top and bake for a further 20 mins until golden and bubbling.

Step 7

Remove from oven and leave to stand for a few minutes.

Step 8

Leave a spoon and bowls next to the pasta dish and back away before the stampede as people rush to help themselves.

Add a bit of variety by alternating between the different flavours.
