It's Cheat Day!


Tonight I can eat carbs!! (This was last Wednesday evening hee..hee..hee..). So. Remember the extra pasta I set aside? The day before, I took it out from the freezer to the fridge to thaw overnight.


On cheat night it was fully defrosted.


I topped it with pizza cheese but the cheese was already near expiry and was on the dry side.

It looked uncannily like shredded cabbage doesn't it?

I put it in the oven and preheated it to 180C. Yup, I put it in before I preheated the oven to speed things up. When the oven beeped, I set it to 15 minutes.

The cheese instead of melty, it was clumpy. But still nice.
My pasta was on the dry side because my sauce wasn't saucy enough. To take note of that when I next make pasta. More sauce, please.


Still heavenly though. It's a small portion. That's how I should be eating.


I'm going to make some more to freeze.

  2. Frozen pasta nothing much to comment about, but... your oven more canggih than mine. Mine won't beep to tell me it is preheated and ready. Usually I just chug my container or foil pack in and turn on the oven, and I add 5 minutes on top of the usual expected time to factor in the preheating. :/

  7. I would cheat myself almost daily. My returns would be plenty of exercise and gallons of plain water.

  9. I love eating your pasta bake but only for lunch. Everyday is a cheat day for me because I eat carbs everyday but in low amount for each meal.

    1. You have good control and discipline. Me, I tend to overeat :(

  10. extra-saucy for me too! :D i do admire your discipline - for me, it's a slippery slope when i indulged. so one portion of pasta would lead to another for me, and before i know it, i've gobbled up three plates. it happened today at mcdonald's when i was having soft-serves ;)
