Macaroni #sikandalouscuisine

Macaroni In Baked Vegetable Sauce #sikandalouscuisine.

The kids ( including me ) at home are very fond of Maggie , however that gets a bit boring as there is just that much one can do with it , so I introduced them to macaroni a few months back and have them hooked on ' elbow ' pasta , which I would dole out in all different sauces.

A post by Katie Shevchenko where she had grilled peppers to make meatball sauce got me thinking . That was exactly how I made soups - so why not adapt the same to sauces too ? This is what I did and it came out delicious. All quantities are approximates , will depend upon how much you are making .
4 Cups Boiled Macaroni - As per instructions , but keep then slightly under cooked - retain 1/2 cup of the water.
1/2 Cup Grated Cheese - I used a mixture of Cheddar and Parmesan.
2 Red Bell Peppers - Remove seeds , cut in chunks.
1 Large Carrot - Peel and chop.
8-10 Cloves Garlic.
4 Large Tomatoes - Cut in chunks.
1 Onion - Cut in chunks.
Salt And Chilies.
Olive Oil
Take all the vegetables , drizzle olive oil and flavor with salt and chilies , mix well and bake covered with silver foil for 30 minutes at 170C . Cool , blend to desired consistency , add 1/2 cup pasta water , add basil leaves , simmer gently for 3-4 minutes. Taste , adjust consistency and flavors then add in pasta ,simmer for 2-3 minutes then stir in cheese and serve immediately .
 I personally like my pasta just about coated in sauce , not drowning in it . Do try making your sauce this way - it comes out delicious !
