This month is Thanks Giving Month and let’s starts with a one pot casserole dish that can occupy a prominent place in your Thanks Giving menu.
If you are hosting a Thanks Giving dinner or having potluck then Baked Mustard Green Pasta would be your best option. It is a unique recipe that will stand out on the dining table and everyone can happily indulge in it due to its nutritional value. Your guest won’t stop licking even the last bit of this recipe and you will be flying high with all the appreciations.
For this I firstly flavored the warm oil with all the herbs that were standing eagerly in my spice shelf to be used. 🙂 Then I added low fat milk and whole wheat flour to make a sauce for the pasta. Seasoned the sauce and tossed the pasta into this herbed sauce. Almost there!!! Half of the recipe is already ready.
Now comes the layering part. Fill the bottom of the baking dish with the cooked pasta and add the second layer of fresh chopped mustard greens, and again add another layer of the rest of the pasta followed by the rest of the greens and finally covering the dish with lots and lots of yummy cheese. Put the baking dish in the preheated oven and bake. Serve warm with your choice of side bread or garlic bread and devour.
I used fresh mustard green leaves as the main ingredient for this recipe because not only are these greens are in season right now but they are extremely healthy vegetables that should be included into our diet. These leaves are peppery in flavor and crispy in texture. These greens are low in calories and high in vitamin K, vitamin A and B-complex and are good source of folic acid. They have essential minerals like iron, zinc, magnesium and promote eyes and skin health.
Must try Baked Mustard Green Pasta this holiday season and stay in good health to avoid feeling guilty of indulgence later 🙂
