I made this pasta bake without any OIL or BUTTER… my husband doesnt like vegetables so i used a vegetable puree in the sauce.. he loved the taste and i did not tell him what it actually had until he had finished eating!! For all of you who want to add butter, oil and use whole milk please do 🙂 I will write the recipe as i made it 🙂 then you all can modify it to your own preferences 🙂
Vegans: you can use vegan cheese and omit the milk completley or use soya milk… If you want to omit the milk completely then you can use more vegetable puree.
250 grams of pasta of your choice, boiled al dente
1 cup of boiled spinach chopped (you can use more if you wish)
1 cup of vegetable puree (i made a puree of green beans, 1onion, 1 tomato all pressure cooked with 1 stock cube…then i pureed it)
2 tablespoons of white flour
1.5 cups of skimmed mik
1/4 cup of grated parmesano cheese
salt , pepper and oregano to taste
grated gouda cheese for sprinkling on the top
heat a pan and add the flour and keep on stirring it for about 30 seconds without letting it brown. Then add the milk slowly and let it cook and thicken. Add the salt,pepper and oregano to taste. Mix in the spinach and the vegetable puree and let it all come to a nice boil. Remove off heat. Add the pasta and the parmesan cheese. Put into a baking dish and top with grated cheese.Bake in a preheated oven till it bubbles and the cheese is nice and golden 🙂
