                                                               Once in a while i try different recipes like this.Au gratin is a french dish.Of course i have modified it a little.I have combined vegetables with macaroni in white sauce and baked it with cheese.It is a side dish usually served with garlic bread.





You will Need(for 4-5people)
  • One small cup of macaroni(shells)

  • Cheese cubes(one per person)
  • Four tsps of white (maida)Flour

How To
1.Dice the potatoes,carrots,potatoes and boil it along with macaroni,peas,corn and little salt.

3.Add the boiled vegetables and if you prefer can add some oregano(i did not add)
4.Pour it into a baking dish.shred cheese on top.Preheat the oven and bake for about 8-10 minutes at 230 C or bake till the cheese melts and starts to become brown like in the picture.
