This sweet potato and feta pasta bake is simple to prepare but takes a little longer to cook than most of my other recipes so I love cooking it on the weekend. It’s perfect for family meals or when you have friends or for batch cooking to keep in the freezer. It’s such a comforting and delicious dish! Perfect for those cold wintery nights in front of the tv!
