How to make 3 Cheese Mushroom Baked Penne Pasta with Creamy Alfredo Mushrooms sauce

  1. Preheat oven to 350F/180C and grease a oven safe casserole dish.
  2. Prepare sauce. Heat the olive oil in a pan. Add the chopped mushrooms and the dry red pepper and cook on medium low heat till the mushrooms are soft. Add flour and saute for few seconds on low heat, we do not want the flour to turn brown.
  3. Now start adding the milk intermittently into the pan. Continuously stir and whisk on low or medium heat.
  4. Once the milk comes to a boil, add the garlic, basil, parsley, rosemary and black pepper. Add the parmesan cheese intermittently and continue to stir and mix till the cheese melts and you get a sauce like consistency.
  5. Take the sauce off the heat and keep it aside. If your sauce thickens, add a little milk to the sauce before using it in the pasta.
  6. Cook pasta al dente in boiling salt water for 10-11 minutes. Drain and wash in cold water and keep it aside.
  7. In a pan, saute the green onions, ginger , garlic, mushrooms, green peas, corns and bell pepper for 7-8 minutes till the veggies are soft and cooked. Add cayenne pepper and salt as per taste.
  8. Add pasta in the casserole dish and pour alfredo sauce over it. Layer on the chopped tomatoes.
  9. Layer on the cooked veggies. Add a layer of grated cottage cheese.
  10. Layer on mozzarella cheese and finally layer on the parmesan cheese.
  11. Cover the pan with an aluminum foil and bake it in oven for 30 minutes. Take out the pan from the oven and remove the foil. Put the pan again in the oven and cook for another 5 minutes or till the cheese melts.
  12. Serve it hot and enjoy with a garlic bread.

My Tip:

I have seen a lot of people having issues with lumps forming in their sauce. Use a whisk to stir and mix your sauce when cooking and always cook on low flame.
