Baked Seafood Pasta

I love to play play with food. This recipe is similar to macaroni cheese baked. Except that you add in some seafood to call it seafood pasta. You can replace seafood with any other ingredients available from your kitchen. eg. ham, bacon, sausages, mixed frozen vegetables or even any left over cold meat. For a more extravagant treat, just replace shrimps with Lobsters and crabs and you can call it "seafood au gratin". Simple recipe and quick to make. Cheese lovers will love it !


  1. 2 cups of colourful shell pasta (i mixed shell pasta with fetucine)
  2. 1/2 can Campbell Cream of Chicken and Mushroom soup mixed with equal amount of water
  3. Some seafood:shrimps, calamanri slices, white fish fillets, crab sticks and etc
  4. 1 beaten egg
  5. 1 onion, sliced
  6. Few cloves of garlic, chopped
  7. 1 capsicum, cut into cubes
  8. 2 tomatoes, cut into cubes
  9. 1 cup milk
  10. 50 g of Edam cheese/cheddar cheese/any other strong flavoured cheese
  11. Some parmesan powder or mozarella cheese slice (basically you just add any cheeses and amount according to your own preference- you can call it 3-cheese pasta if you add 3 varieties)
  12. Chopped fresh parsley /basil/ cilantro/oregano (whatever herbs you preferred, dried mixed herbs are okay too)
  1. Cook pasta in boiling salted water till tender, drained.
  2. Heat up a little oil in the pan, fry onion and garlic till fragant, add in pasta and the vege and stir fried for 5 min.
  3. Transfer all the ingredients including the seafood into a baking dish.
  4. Pour in the egg mixture with Cream of Chicken and Mushroom Soup and enough milk to cover the pasta.
  5. Stir well with the mozarella cheese slices
  6. Top with more cheeses
  7. Sprinkle the top with mixed herbs
  8. Bake covered for 15 min at 220 degree celcius. Then another 15 min uncovered to brown the cheese topping.
