Oven-Baked Pasta

Whoever thought ketchup would be the secret ingredient to this dish?


1 400g can of tomatos boiled in basil (you can also choose to do it separately)
500g penne
2 cloves garlic, crushed
400g bag of "Italian vegetables"
500g mince meat
tomato ketchup
1 bag grated cheese (I prefer parmesan, pecorino, old chedder, gruyere or old gouda. Mozarella does not have enough taste)
salt & black pepper to taste
generous splash of dark balsamico

1. Boil pasta til al dente (not more because your pasta will cook more in the oven).

2. Squirt some liquified butter or olive oil and throw in the meat. When almost done, add in the vegetables and stir-fry until tender.

3. Add the can of tomatoes and a generous amount of ketchup (basically til it has the consistancy of spaghetti sauce) and let it simmer for about 10 minutes. Crush the 2 cloves of garlic and stir it and the balsamico in. Simmer for 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

4. Meanwhile, layer the pasta at the bottom of a large casserole dish and heat the oven to 200 degrees. Heap the sauce on top of the pasta and top it with grated cheese. Put the dish in the oven for about 20 minutes.

Simple and delicious:D Not authentic but it's good:)
