Course Main Dish
Cuisine Italian

  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese grated
  • 1 cup veggies chopped and blanched
  • 1 onion chopped
  • handful oregano thyme basil fresh or dried
  • to taste salt and red chilli flakes
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp butter


  • Boil pasta as per instructions.
  • Heat olive oil and butter in a pan.
  • Add the herbs and onions and fry for 3-4 minutes. The onions won't really turn brown because of olive oil and butter.
  • Add the veggies and stir fry for 3-6 minutes depending on whether you have blanched your veggies or not.
  • Add salt and red chilli flakes.
  • Fry for another 2-3 minutes.
  • Transfer to a baking dish, sprinkle the grated cheese.
  • Bake in a preheated oven at 180C for about 5 mins till the cheese is nicely melted.
  • Serve hot.
