Today is a great day to make cheesy pasta bechamel, a creamy and delicious treat.


1 packet pasta, boiled

2 tablespoons butter

2 tablespoons flour

2 1/2 cups milk

Salt to taste

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1/2 teaspoon oregano

1/2 teaspoon garlic paste

300g cheddar cheese, grated

200g mozzarella cheese, grated

2 tomatoes, sliced


In a pan over medium heat add the butter. When it melts add the flour and mix well. Now add the milk and whip using a hand whisk until smooth.

Add the garlic paste and mix. Add the salt and pepper, mix, then add the oregano.

Simmer until thick. Layer the boiled pasta on a casserole or baking tray, and pour in the white sauce over the pasta.

Preheat oven to 180C and bake for 45 minutes. Remove and sprinkle the mozzarella and cheddar cheese on top and bake for another 10-15 minutes or until the cheese melts.

Garnish with tomatoes and serve as a meal on its own. Enjoy!
