Baked vegetable pasta

Pasta has always been a favourite. I remember my mom made it in a ‘desi’ way, that is like adding the boiled pasta to cooked vegetables with usual seasoning and spices. And we enjoyed it a lot. Then later my mom used to make a white sauce and add the boiled pasta to it with salt and pepper and that version became my favourite. I still make it that way sometimes. But this time I tried baking it with some vegetables and nuts along with some herbs. We liked it , but it never matched the taste of pasta with white sauce version. But still, this one is more healthier with less of fat.

  2. Now grease a baking dish with butter. Sprinkle the lemon rind on it if you are using. Then add a layer of pasta. Then add a vegetable layer over it. Then a layer of pasta again followed by a layer of vegetable again.
  3. Now at this point , you can sprinkle some mozarella cheese on it. (I just added little cheese spread on it for the cheesy taste.)
