Tomato and Pasta Bake!!!

Hi guys!!!

Every other week I try to prepare a meal that has cheese as the main ingredient and sinfully loaded with calories :-) It is mostly pizza but I decided to try pasta bake this time. I went with the easiest pasta bake dish. Any pizza lover will be able to agree that the combination of tomato and cheese is just YUMMMMMYYY!!!! So you can just take my word that this simple tomato pasta bake tastes heavenly :-)

Now lets take a look at the recipe.


Penne pasta - 150 gms
Onion - 1
Tomato - 1
Canned tomato soup - 1 can
Grated Mature cheddar - 2 cups (Like I said, sinful calories)
Olive oil - 1 tsp
Italian seasoning - 1 tsp
Oregano - 1 tsp
Pepper powder - 1 tsp
Salt - as required


1. Preheat oven to 180C.
2. Boil the pasta with olive oil and salt for about 5 minutes or according to package instructions and set aside.
3. Chop the onion and tomato.
4. Take a casserole dish or any dish suitable for baking. Add the pasta, chopped onion and tomato. Empty the can of tomato soup into the dish and mix well.
5. Add the italian seasoning, oregano and pepper powder and mix thoroughly. Check for salt and if required add salt to taste.
6. Finally add the grated cheese on top to completely cover the pasta mixture.
7. Once the oven is at right temperature place the casserole dish in the oven and cook till the pasta is heated throughout and the cheese starts to bubble. It takes roughly around 25 minutes.
8. When the cheese has melted and turned bubbly switch off oven and enjoy the cheese filled pasta bake right away.
