BAKED VEG PASTA WITH VEGETABLES
Ingredients for 4 people: 300 g penne (short kind is the best) – 0.5 l vegan béchamel sauce – 1 carrot – 1 zucchini – 1 bell pepper – 1 potato – 1 broccoli – salt and pepper q.b. – extra virgin olive oil – a few tablespoons of breadcrumbs
Cook the pasta in plenty of salted water for the time indicated on the package. Add in the pasta pot also peeled potatoes cut into half a centimeter slices.
Meanwhile, dedicate yourself to the preparation of the vegetables. Peel the carrot and remove the ends. Remove the ends of the zucchini too. With a large kitchen knife cut all the vegetables into half a centimeter cubes. Wash the peppers, remove the stalk, seeds and white filaments inside and cut it like other vegetables. Take away the tops of the broccoli with a small knife.
Heat 3 tablespoons of oil in a large pan and add the vegetables. Cook, stirring occasionally for 15 minutes, then season to taste with salt and pepper. If they dry too much in cooking you can add a few tablespoons of water.
When the pasta is ready, drain and pass under the jet of cold water, so as to remove excess starch and stop cooking. Transfer it in a rather large bowl and season with vegetables and béchamel sauce.
Stir well and transfer into a pan suitable for baking in the oven. Sprinkle with breadcrumbs and cook at 200 º C for 20 minutes or until a crust is formed.
Serve baked pasta steaming hot!
