Instructions

  • Add crushed tomato, Tomato Paste, Italian Seasoning, salt and pepper. Mix well.
  • Add cooked pasta to the skillet and toss everything well.
  • In a 9X13 inch baking dish, spread half of the vegetable pasta mixture. Sprinkle half of the cheese. Spread the rest of the pasta mixture on top of the cheese layer.
  • Bake in a preheated oven for 20 minutes.
  • Carefully take out the pan, sprinkle parmesan on top. Serve hot.

Notes

  • This recipe involves two main prep steps that can also be done simultaneously.
  • You can sauté the vegetables, onions, and garlic while at the same time boiling the pasta and then strain it. First, keep the pasta for boiling while you heat the pan and heat the oil.
  • Follow the cooking instructions on the pasta packet specified by the manufacturer. Every label and type of pasta comes with its own set of instructions which may vary.
