Fantastically Easy, One Pot Meal Baked

I don't like to fuss over cooking, and frequently I just don't have the time to do anything that requires more than one step.  So here's a quick and easy and tasty and open to all sorts of variations noodle and vegetable casserole.

For the very most efficient way to make this, use a covered bake and serve dish, though you can also use a simple disposable aluminum pan and cover it with aluminum foil.

This version I made with:
  • pasta, straight from the box/bag
  • sliced carrots
  • cut onion
  • a generous squeeze of catsup
  • a bit of vegetable oil
  • enough water to cover the pasta plus a bit
  • optional any herbs and spices or other vegetables or even rice instead of the pasta
  • if you wish to add a protein, try a can of beans or cheese or... whatever...
Cover and bake on a highish heat; every oven is different.  The water will boil when baking and the pasta will cook without your having to touch it at all.  Stir before serving.

If you try this, please let me know how you've adapted it and tell me in the comments, thanks.
