3 Cheese Healthy Pasta Casserole

When we are looking for some comforting meal that pleases kids too, then it is hard to go wrong with pasta. This is true at least in my family. My kids love to eat pasta in any form-with red sauce, white sauce or combination of both. This time I wanted to experiment something different, so tried green sauce. Now what is this green sauce??

Green sauce is spinach based sauce.. I had spinach puree lying in my fridge that I used to make sauce hense green sauce. I wanted to make pasta vegan, but as soon as I opened my fridge to take out spinach, there was lying some cream cheese and cottage cheese. I decided to use them and dropped the idea of making vegan pasta casserole. Hence all this cleaning up of my fridge resulted into healthy and delicious three cheese pasta.

Here is the recipe of pasta….

    1. Yeah, me and my daughter had it for breakfast. Whatever was left, she had in lunch too. She doesn’t eat spinach otherwise, but in this casserole she liked it too much.

  1. We love pastas too. I too make green sauce with spinach.. Once I had made tricolour pasta casserole.! Now, with a baby, i cant even think of spending so much time in the kitchen
