Recipe: 3 Cheese Mushroom Bake | Jess & Josh Cook

It’s the week before payday so we’re living off leftovers and doing mostly veggie meals to keep spending to a minimum before I get paid tomorrow and blow it all over the bank holiday weekend.

We managed to get 4 meals out of this pasta bake (2 dinners and 2 lunches) so I thought I’d share the recipe with y’all so you can give it a go if you’re saving or if you just want a super easy mid-week recipe.
