[ad#Google Adsense Horizontal Links]

Everybody loves Baked cheese pasta in my house. My mother-in-law taught me this recipe. You can add a variety of vegetables and herbs as per your taste or liking. You can even add boiled chicken to it.

Kids love it a lot as it is not very spicy. It is one of the most nutritious food you can make for your kid and his parties. Give it a try.

Ingredients

  • Vegetables – 2 cups cooked (French beans, green peas, cherry tomatoes, cauliflower, mushrooms, carrots, sweet corns, black pitted olives and so on)
  • Penne/Elbow pasta – 2 cups cooked
  • Cheese mozzarella/processed – Generous portion
  • Salt to taste
  • Hot and sweet sauce – 1 tbsp
  • White sauce – approx one and half cup
  • Butter – as needed
  • All purpose flour – 3 to 4 tbsp
  • Vegetable stock – if available else use plain water

White sauce

  1. Heat a sauce pan on medium flame and put the all purpose flour into it.
  2. Keep stirring so that it doesn’t burn.
  3. Once the colour changes slightly take it of the flame and add vegetable stock and keep on stirring it to avoid lumps.
  4. Again, keep the sauce pan on medium flame and stir it till it becomes thick.
  5. Add some salt and black pepper while stirring.
  6. Switch off the flame, keep the saucepan aside and let it cool.

Procedure

  1. Once the white sauce is done then its all about mixing and baking.
  2. In a mixing bowl, add the boiled vegetables, white sauce, pasta, hot and sweet/chilly sauce and mix it very gently so that you don’t break the pasta.
  3. Grease the baking tin with butter and spread a layer of the above mixture followed by a layer of cheese. This way fill the baking tray and on the top again add some more cheese.
  4. Preheat the oven on high temperature and keep the pasta inside till you see the cheese on top turning golden brown.
  5. Serve hot.

Tips

  • Make sure the pasta and vegetables are not over cooked.
  • Make sure the pasta doesn’t break while mixing as it will make your dish look really bad.
  • For a party keep everything ready except baking.  Before the party just pour the layers and bake the pasta.
  • Be careful while doing white sauce. If it burns a little, it will give your dish bad smell. If this happens, throw it away and the white sauce again.

  1. The dish looks great! I have a query. Do we need to boil cherry tomatoes & olives along with the other veggies? Can we add them at the timing of baking directly instead of boiling?

  2. Thanks. Cherry Tomatoes and Olives you can add at the time of baking. But, you need to boil the other veggies. Sorry for the delay in respond… Was away for sometime. 🙂
