Baked Macaroni

My husband’s family had a family reunion last December 31, I was having a hard time thinking what to bring and I don’t want to go to grocery just to buy ingredients, I hate the long lines so I just check my pantry and decided to make Baked Macaroni and Cheesy Garlic BreadPasta is not really my favorite but I always have this in my pantry because it so easy to cook especially if we have nothing to eat at home and for emergency like this “potluck”.

I’ve been using this recipe for years already, recipe from Quickmelt Cheese.

450g elbow macaroni
½ cup butter
1 tsp minced garlic
½ cup chopped onion
½ kl giniling
1 cup ham
½ cup red bell pepper
2 cup tomato sauce
½ cup chicken broth
1 tsp salt
Pepper to taste
2 tbsp sugar
1 cup quickmelt cheese (I used mozzarella cheese)

1. Cook pasta according to package directions.
2. In a sauce pan, melt butter and sauté the rest of ingredients except cheese.  Allow mixture to simmer for 5 to 10 minutes.
3. Toss noodles with prepared sauce. Place in an oven-proof baking dish and sprinkle with grated cheese on top.
4. Bake at 180C pre heated over for 15-20 minutes or until cheese melts. 


  1. Ako naman mahilig sa pasta. Happy 2013!
