Pasta Bake

Last night me and Jorg went to see a live band with his family and friends, I'm not really crazy about music but this band was actually really good! It was just in a little bar/pub and the band was called "Paranoized".

In the morning we were feeling tired and a bit hungover (me being a lightweight after only 2 glasses of wine!) and in the past I always made an english breakfast (eggs, toast/fried bread, baked beans, veggie sausages). This time I had porridge with banana, a kiwi and a prickly pear. I think I'll always do that in the future as I felt so refreshed afterwards!
Prickly pear - a bit like a little watermelon!

Anyway we just made dinner and made our own home made pasta bake! So easy to make and soooo yummy, heres what we did:

You will need:
Vegetables - we used 1 red pepper, 1 carrot, broccoli, garlic and a courgette (but you can add what you want!)
Vegetable stock
Pasta (we used the tagliatelle kind)
Cream (single cream or you can even use creme fraiche) about 100g/half a pot
Baking tin/heatproof dish

What you do:
Cook the pasta as normal but for half the cooking time (it still has to be a bit hard!)
Cut all vegetables and throw in a pan with oil,
 cook for 5 - 10 minutes and season with what you want

Put the pasta in your heatproof dish, followed by the vegetables. Crumble the vegetable stock over and pour the cream over. Pour some boiling water over (not much - make sure your pasta and vegetables aren't swimming in water and cream).
Cover with cheese and put in the oven!
As I live in student accommodation I only have a mini oven, and it took 30 minutes - times will vary depending on the oven but once the cheese looks a bit brown and its bubbling away it's done!
