Baked Tomato Pasta with Cheese


Actually I am not intend to make any post today. Mui Mui -My Little Favourite DIY yesterday message me that her Tomato event will only end by 4th Apr, ask me whether anymore tomato post to submit..So as to support her, I post this baked pasta with cheese which I encore from my previous post..My kids very often request me to make this pasta for them as they love the baked cheese on top..





Nowadays I don't quite like to use ready pasta tomato sauce, instead I like to cook it with Italian tomato puree..And this time I did a simple way, just minced chicken with tomato puree..

Oh I made spaghetti for lunch too, but not as delicious like yours; with the baked cheese topping it sure does added more tastier, right.

Hi hi,

Thanks,
