Step By Step Preparation Guide
Line springform pan with heavy foil, (optional) spray with nonstick spray, set aside until rest of casserole is ready, preheat oven to 350 degrees

Bring 2 quarts of water to boil in large pot , toss in pasta, cover and cook 20 minutes until done, drain thoroughly then  toss back into large pot, set aside, but add other ingredients as they become ready 

Mix soya mince, BBQ sauce, garlic and water together in microwave bowl, microwave on high for 5 minutes, stir when done,  set aside until noodles are drained, then toss into large pot with noodles

Place carrots, spinach, onion, celery, basil and the 1 teaspoon of water  into microwave bowl, stir, cover and microwave on high  for 5 minutes, when done, drain any excess water, toss in with noodle mixture

Place cheese, milk, mustard & tarragon  in microwave bowl, microwave on High for 2 minutes, stir thoroughly, microwave in 1 minute increments until cheese is completely melted, then stir in thoroughly with noodles and veggies

Add pepper and salt to complete pot and stir again

Stir in beaten eggs thoroughly with pasta & veggies.

Transfer casserole ingredients into springform casserole pan

Cover with 1/2 cup shredded cheese, then top with ground crackers

Carefully pat down casserole with clean hands

Sprinkle paprika in 3 straight lines across top of  casserole

Bake for 30 minutes

Let sit for at least 20 minutes (don't worry, it will still be extra hot!)

Pop sides off springform pan

Casserole is ready to slice into pie shaped wedges

Leftovers can conveniently be wrapped up in foil.

If making this as a dish for company, then omit the foil lining, spray springform pan with nonstick spay, and if you let it sit the 20 minutes, after cooking, it will pop from the pan and serve up beautifully!

Before Baking

After Baking

Cooked Soya Mince, Tastier than Ground Beef
and far more healthier, now if you just gotta have BEEF, then by all means, skip the Soya Mince and cook ground  beef, but I recommend you rinse Beef after cooking, to remove all those animal fats, many beef lovers have been fooled by Soya Mince, so don't be afraid to try it, you might like it!
