4.Now add the pasta , cooked vegetables and the white sauce together and mix carefully with oregano leaves. At this stage itself the pasta is ready to be served.
6.But just in order to make it rich in taste, add the pizza cheese just to cover the top of the pasta and leave it in oven till u find the cheese melted. This would just take about 5 minutes maximum.
