READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Kasha

Strange but good, cheap, easy and low fat, low calorie recipe. It always surprises people, but they always like it. I wrote this down years ago, from a magazine, I think.

This was yummy. The only changes that I made were to use fresh broccoli and whole milk. (I also used bottled sauce.) I really like the pasta cakes and I think they would be very good with many other types of sauces. Next time, I might sprinkle a little bit of parmesan or romano cheese on each one before putting them in the oven. Thanks for posting such a easy and yummy recipe!
