Creamy Baked Pasta with Otah


Recently I made up a recipe on the fly, just wanted to share it here! Pardon the lack of measurements, I tend to eyeball stuff.

Creamy Baked Pasta with Otah

Ingredients you need:

  • Otah cut into small pieces
  • Pasta of your choice - we used Fusili
  • Cooking Cream (I use Nestle's 170g cream)
  • Minced Garlic (2 small cloves)
  • Butter or oil
  • Chicken stock (soup/powder)
  • Herbs (oregano/ basil
  • Black Pepper
  • Shredded Mozarella
You'll also need:
  • pot for cooking pasta
  • a shallow dish
  • frying pan
  • an oven preheated to 200 deg c
  1. Preheat your oven.
  2. Cook the pasta till about 90% done. Pour into shallow dish.
  3. Prepare your sauce! In a frying pan, fry your garlic, then add the cooking cream. Add chicken stock or powder to flavour the cream. Add herbs and black pepper. Mix well.
  4. Pour into dish and combine well with the pasta. 
  5. Top with otah pieces.
  6. Cover generously with mozzarella cheese and pop into oven for 20 minutes, or when top is nicely browned. 
  7. Enjoy!
