Creamy Baked Pasta
We all love pasta, be it red pasta(in Marinara Sauce) or white pasta(alfredo or in bachemal sauce) or this baked pasta. Whenever I have some boiled pasta left I either add to soup or make this baked pasta with whatever vegetales I have in my refrigerator.
Ingredients to make Creamy Baked Pasta
Pasta- I used fusilli pasta, you can use any pasta of your choice like elbow, penne.
Vegetables- I have added broccoli, mixed bell peppers, corn and green beans. Use any veggies of your choice like carrots, bell peppers, mushrooms, peas, corn, spinach.. any of your your choice that go along well with pasta dishes.
Cheese-Any grated cheese like Mozzarella or pepper Jack , Bread crumbs, Italian Seasoning and dried Basil or Oregano.
Creamy White Sauce for Pasta
I used my homemade Bechamel Sauce. I always (try) to use homemade sauces and masala in my meals. Anytime in my refrigerator you will find one or two bottles of homemade sauces, jams and bhuna masala for Indian curries.
These condiments come so handy especially for quick and fuss-free meals when you are back form outings, late kids activity classes or want something made in jiffy.
