Macaroni and cheese

Macaroni and cheese 

Macaroni and cheese is my another all time favorite comfort food. Italians believe macaroni is a mood changer, and I completely agree with that! Kids love this as its not complicated and its a best way to make them eat the veggies they usually don’t like.

Macaroni/Elbow Pasta /Penne Pasta  2 cups
Onions chopped1/2 cup
Tomato chopped 1/2 cup
Bell pepper chopped 1/2 cup
Pepper powder 1/2 tsp
Salt to taste
Ketchup 1 cup
Cheese grated 1 cup
Olive oil 2 tsp


Boil macaroni for 10 mins in hot boiling water and a pinch of salt and keep aside.

In a non stick pan, add olive oil and the chopped onion, tomatoes seedless and bell pepper. To make it look more colorful you can add yellow and red bell pepper also but remember it can get very spicy so add according to your taste.

Once the veggies become soft add the ketchup and 1 cup of water. You can add your choice of ketchup I used the sweet and spicy one.

Once the sauce is thickened add cooked macaroni and mix everything thoroughly. Cook on low flame for 5 more minutes and then turn off the flame.

Grease the baking dish and pour over the macaroni, sprinkle the cheese on top and bake in a pre-heated oven at 200 degrees C for 10 mts.

Finger licking macaroni is ready!!
