Baked Pasta

I know why can't I lose weight. I always tempted by other's food blog *hihihi* and curious what it tastes like. I put aside this recipe long time. I said to myself I definitely will try this sometimes. And I did. Yesterday, as usual my weekend always spent in the kitchen *hehehe* But since this is cooking, so I didn't really follow the measurement exactly :) Anyhow, I'll make your browsing easier by posting it below.
