Today, I'm about to cook something I haven't cooked in quite a while. It's called Gesunder Nudelauflauf (in German - Healthy Pasta Casserole), or better, I just called it that because I couldn't come up with a better name. This is mainly for my own reference, but I thought, I'd share it.


  1. Carrots (~3-4)
  2. Broccoli (1)
  3. Coliflower (1/2)
  4. Pasta (Pene) (500g)
  5. Tomatoes (2-3)
  6. Feta Cheese (1 pack ~250g)
  7. Grated Cheese (~200g)
  8. Flower (1 tbsp)
  9. Water
  10. Milk (to liking, ~50ml)

The order of making things you can optimise to use the least amount of time.

  1. Boil ~1/2 pot of water put (carrots in first) vegetables cut into pieces. Boil for ~10-15 minutes, depending on whether you want them soft or on the hard side. Add Chicken stock or similar or salt and pepper to liking. Important: keep water content as low as possible and do not get rid of the water after.
  2. Make a "Schwitze" (roux): put some flour (1 tbsp initially) and butter (1 tbsp) into a small pot (preferable) or pan, wait until golden brown, add water from boiled vegetables (to keep the nutrients), add milk until you have a thick soup.
  3. Boil pasta until al dente with salt to liking.
  4. After vegetables are ready, put them into a casserole dish, put unboiled tomatoes and feta cut into pieces over. Add pasta and finish with the "Schwitze" on top. Add grated cheese on top.
  5. Put into oven at 200 degrees (centigrade) for 30-45 minutes (check).

Voila! You should have made a reasonably healthy pasta casserole. Please comment if it works out well. :-)
