Last night I had a hankering for pasta…
Baked, cheesy pasta.
So I took inventory of my pantry, pulled out the necessary ingredients…
…and proceeded to document the entire recipe process with my iPhone. This pasta dish is easy-smeasy and ridiculously delicious. I like to make it on lazy, rainy nights, and if I can make it with with a cell phone glued to one hand the entire time, you can most definitely make it, too.
So, please, excuse the blur as I present to you: Pasta Dinner a la iPhone Photos.
Put some water on to boil and preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Chop half a yellow onion and 2-3 cloves of garlic (less if you’re not obsessed with garlic like I am).
Add half a box of pasta to the boiling water (I used whole wheat shells) and sauté your garlic and onions. (Note: add the garlic first and add the onions only after you start to smell the garlic.) Sauté for around five minutes.
Shred some parmesan cheese…
And prep your baking pan by pouring a thin layer of sauce on the bottom.
Now here’s where it gets really easy. When your pasta is done cooking, throw everything together:
Top with more sauce.
Add a layer of cheese (~1/2 cup shredded mozzarella and previously grated parmesan).
Cover with foil.
Bake, covered, for 20 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for another 10 minutes.
When the time is up, take out your masterpiece and marvel at what a great chef you are for precisely three minutes (the time it takes to cool).
Then eat the whole pan.
No, Really. The Whole Pan.
Then have a cookie for dessert.
That’s obviously the most important step.
p.s. My iPhone smells like garlic now, and I’m OK with that.
