- Add the mixture to a pan, add cream cheese and stir through on a low heat.
- Cook 300g pasta as per packs instructions.
- Grill bacon until cooked. Dice finely and add this to the sauce with the remaining chunks of squash.(to reduce the salt level for little ones, remove adequate sized portion of sauce before adding the bacon)

Swap this for that
Use half a stockpot or cube if you don’t have a low salt option
