  • Pasta Au Gratin

    for detailed step wise pictures, click here

    Ingredients ~
    Pasta shells - 300 grams - 2 cups (I used different shapes)
    Onion - 1 medium - chopped (optional)
    Mixed vegetables - 1 cup (optional)
    Olive Oil - 1 teaspoon (or any other oil)
    Pesto Sauce*
    Tomato Sauce*
    White Sauce*
    Parmesan/ Cheddar/ Mozzarella Cheese*
    Salt - to taste
    Chili Flakes & Oregano
    Microwave
    * I haven't given any measurements for these because you can use as much as you want!

    Steps:
    I. Make the Pesto Sauce (or buy)
    II. Make the White Sauce (or buy)
    III. Make the Tomato Sauce (or buy)
    IV. Make the Pasta
    V. Prepare the Au Gratin dish.
    V. Microwave away~~~

    I. Make the Pesto Sauce - Check ✔

    II. Make the White Sauce - Check ✔
    III. Make the Tomato Sauce - Check ✔
    IV. Make the Pasta -
    1. Heat water in a pan with generous amounts of salt.

    2. Put the pasta in the hot water & let it boil for about 1 minute.
    (don't cook completely since you are gonna keep in microwave too)

    3. Filter the water & transfer the pasta to cool water.

    4. Heat oil in a pan.

    5. Add onions & veggies & stir fry for about 2 minutes.

    6. Add salt per taste.
    7. Add the Pasta & mix well.

    8. Separate the Pasta into to bowls. In one, mix it with Pesto Sauce

    9. In other, mix with tomato sauce / Pizza sauce (I used ketchup)

    V. Preare the Au Gratin dish -
    1. Take a microwave safe bowl/dish. Add some Pesto Pasta to the dish.

    2. Then, drizzle white sauce all over it.

    3. Add grated cheese.
    4. Next put some Red (tomato sauce) Pasta on top of it.

    5. White Sauce & then cheese.

    6. Repeat until the dish is filled / Pasta is over.

    7. Skip if you want: Add lots of cheese all over the dish. (of course, you can be health-conscious & add just a spoon-full! :P
    8. Sprinkle some Oregano & Chili Flakes on top.

    VI. Microwave Away -
    My Microwave doesn't have any temperatures or anything. A simple heat or grill option. So what I did was -
    1. Cover the dish with a plastic wrap or lid
    2. Heat (for cheese to melt) for 2 minutes.
    3. Grill for 5 minutes.

    Your Cheesy Pasta Au Gratin is READY! :-)
