Baked Pasta

  • 1 box of Penne Pasta
  • 1/2 a tin of marinara sauce
  • 1 onion
  • 1 capsicum
  • 1 green squash
  • 1/2 cup of Swiss cheese
  • 1/2 cup of Mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup of Cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup of Parmesan
  • 1/4 cups of Red Wine
  • Chillie Flakes
  • Garlic Powder
  • 1 tbsp of Italian Herbs
  • good Olive Oil
  • Pre-heat the over for 300 degrees. Cut the vegetables in equal size and put it on the baking sheet. Drizzle the vegetable with some Olive Oil and then add the Italian Herbs and mix well. Bake this for 15 mins so that the vegetables get toasted.
  • In the mean time bring a big bowl of water to a boil, once it starts boiling well add some salt and pasta and cook for 11 mins. (Do not over cook as the rest of the cooking will happen in the oven)
  • In another pan add the Marinara sauce and wine and bring it to a boil. Once the wine has evaporated turn the gas off.
  • Add the cooked pasta and the grilled vegetables to this along with 3/4 of the cheese (combine all the cheese together except the Parmesan) mix it all together, if you think that the pasta is not coated with enough sauce you can add some more sauce to this.
  • Put this in an oven safe bowl and add the remaining cheese on top and bake it for about 15 to 20 mins or until the cheese has melted and has a nice golden colour.

About Me

I just love to cook and everything that goes along with food. I cook at home most of the time but I do enjoy eating out once in a while too. I have 2 blogs, one with all my recipes and the other one is all the places that we eat at. My husband and I love to eat and go out. The other day I was looking for a new phone so we were doing our rounds to all the service providers around our house, before we can decide which one to go with. When we went to the Sprint store close to our house we realized that we even though we have been in this area for the past 4 years we have never been to that strip mall. We found a pizza place that looked really good from the outside. That's when we made a New Year's resolution of eating out once a week and try a new restaurant each time. And here I will write my thoughts of the place and what I think of it.
