What type of vegetables to be used for Pasta bake with veggies?

As I have already mentioned, there is no hard and fast rule to add veggies in this pasta bake with white sauce. But one thing that needs to be taken of while selecting the veggies is the way of cooking them for the recipe. Few veggies can be directly added raw into the casserole to bake. But few veggies need to be cooked before adding into the casserole before baking.

Vegetables which can be added raw

Frozen vegetables can be added raw for baking after thawing them completely. Frozen vegetables get soften as compared to fresh vegetables after thawing. Mushrooms and frozen peas can also be added into the pasta directly.

Vegetables which need to be cooked before adding

How to make baked pasta?

To prepare the Pasta bake with veggies, I have used fusilli pasta. But you can also use other variety of pasta too. Check the instruction section of the package of pasta at the back and cook it accordingly for 1-2 minutes lesser because the pasta is going to be baked further. Overcooking may spoil the texture of the dish.

For the Pasta bake with veggies, I have used garlic, onion, broccoli florets, carrots and peas. I have selected fresh vegetables. So, it was necessary to cook before letting them go to bake. I have taken a pan and caramelized the garlic and onion in olive oil. Then I have cooked all the veggies till tender. I have added some seasoning and cumin powder, black pepper powder, smoked paprika and mixed herbs for flavouring. Mixed herb is the combination of equal portion of thyme, oregano, basil, parsley and marjoram.

Then I have mixed the cooked pasta into the veggies and mixed them evenly after switching off the flame.

For the pasta bake with white sauce, I have prepared the white sauce at home. Though many varieties of white sauce jars are readily available in market, but I always prefer the homemade sauce over the readymade.

For the white sauce, first I have added butter into a pan. Then I have added all-purpose flour into it and cooked it till it changed its colour to light brown. After this, I added milk into it and whisked it vigorously with the help of a whisker to make it smooth and lumps free. Then cooked it until the sauce thickens. Then I added medium sharp cheddar cheese to it. You can add any cheese of your choice. I have cooked it slowly until the cheese melted. Then switched off the flame and added seasoning, crushed black pepper, dried basil and mixed it nicely.

Now, it’s time to accumulate all the components together into a single roaster. For me, this is the most interesting part of the recipe where you can draw the picture according to your taste.

Take a casserole and add half of the veggie pasta mix into the casserole or roaster and spread it evenly. Make sure there are no holes or gaps in between. The veggie pasta must be spread uniformly. Then pour half of the white sauce on the veggie pasta and spread it uniformly with the help of a rubber spatula. Sprinkle cheese over it. Be generous during the time of sprinkling the cheese. Sprinkle some crushed black pepper and dried basil on the top of cheese.

Repeat the whole process once again and make the second layer of it. Transfer the casserole into the preheated oven of 200°C/180°C fan/gas 6 for 25-30 minutes until the cheese on the top melts and golden scar occurs on it.
