Whole Wheat Pasta Bake.





Here's a great recipe for a whole wheat pasta bake. It's kind of like a made from scratch Hamburger helper :)

You will need:
Flour
Milk
Parm cheese
Mexican cheese mix
Whole wheat noodles
Olive oil
Salt and pepper
Hamburger meat (That can be optional)

First, start by putting your Olive oil in the pan. I would say about 2 tablespoons. Next I would mix about 3 table spoons of flour into the olive oil and it should start to coat the flour (almost becoming beaded). Once that is accomplished, use a whisk, and start to pour in the milk. I usually just add until I get the mixture is as thick or thin as I want it. Next add the Parm (about a cup) and Mexican shredded cheese mix (You can add any shredded cheese you like. You can add from half of the bag to a whole. Your choice). Then salt and pepper to your taste. Next add your cooked noodles and/or hamburger meat. Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes.

So this is your basic and frugal homemade Hamburger helper or Mac and cheese dish. Enjoy!
