Baked Pasta and Whole Wheat Rolls

3 Jan

That’s what is for dinner! Our toaster oven fits a pie plate perfectly, so this is a favorite dish, and is easy to prepare.

You take your favorite pasta and boil it. You then add your favorite sauce and meat (if you so desire). You then top the dish (which holds about 1/2 pound of pasta comfortably if it is a 9″ pie plate) with mozzarella cheese and parmesan cheese. You bake it in a 350°F oven until the top is bubbly and golden in spots.

It is a very easy dish, and I can make 2 pie plates at once, and freeze the second one for a simple meal to pull out and bake at short notice. If you bake it frozen, be sure to place foil over the top of the dish for about 15 minutes so that the cheese doesn’t over cook while the rest of the dish is still heating up.

You just add salad or whatever sides you would like, and it is a simple, easy meal.

I happened to add whole wheat rolls to this meal. I do love homemade bread.

You can always par bake the bread, and freeze it for an easy addition to any meal.

Just make sure to add butter (LOTS of butter) to your rolls. 😀 A roll without butter is like…a fish without water.

Or the sky without the sun.

Or soda without ice.


…well, I guess you get the point.

Add butter.

Just do it.
