Baked Cheesy Veggie Pasta

Ingredients :

Penne Pasta - 1 Cup
Capsicum (Red,Green,Yellow) - 1/2 Cup
Onion (Big Size) - 1 No
Mozzarella Cheese - 3 Tbsp
Olive oil - 1 Table Spoon
Ginger Garlic paste - 1 Teaspoon
Green chilies - finely minced - 1/2 teaspoon.
Crushed Pepper - 1 Teaspoon

Method :

Cook pasta with salt and a teaspoon of cooking oil until it becomes soft. Drain it in a colander, show it to the tap water and wash the pasta twice. Once the water is completely drained, add a teaspoon of olive oil, so that it does not become sticky.
Heat pan with olive oil add sliced onions to it, add a pinch of salt and fry for a minute, now add ginger garlic paste, minced green chilies to it, saute well till the raw smell goes off, then add the sliced capsicum, with enough salt and cook until its half done. 

Now Preheat oven for 200 degrees Celsius. Divide pasta,  veggie and cheese to 3 portions, arranging with sauteed veggie as the 1st layer then add cooked pasta, now spread cheese, repeat the same cycle twice. Then bake it until the cheese melts and form a golden crust on top. 

Take out from oven and add crushed pepper on top. Serve hot.


You can add sliced cabbage, carrots, broccoli instead of capsicum
Crushed dry red chilies can be added instead of green chilies and pepper
Dry mixed herbs (Oregano, Thyme, Rosemary, Parsley) can also be added.


If you want the pasta to get cooked soon,soak in plain water for 1 hour and then cook.
