Easy Baked Penne Pasta with Cheese

Life is busy, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have tasty, home cooked meals.
Pasta dishes are both hearty and comforting.
This recipe does'nt take much time to prepare.

All prep-up and set to go into the oven..

Out from the oven, hot and bubbly and cheezy...

Plate it up and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
You can easily add extra, seasonal vegetables to this dish, but you don’t have to.
A quick and creamy pasta bake that can be reheated for lunch the next day - if you manage to have any left!

1/2 packet Penne Pasta
2 tbsp olive oil
1 bulb white onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced

1 cup grated Mozzarella Cheese
1 cup grated Ceddar Cheese
1 tsp freshly ground Black pepper
