Today is a great day to make cheesy pasta béchamel, 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 180°C 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!
