Pasta muffin cups

This is the most awesome and easiest appetizer I have had, thanks to a very dear friend Preethi!

Try it and I am sure you will LOVE IT!!!!!

Elbow macaroni -1 cup cooked and cooled
Cheddar cheese- 3/4 cup or more :)
Panko breadcrumbs
Chat masala

Sauted finely chopped veggies: You can add whatever you like. I add colored peppers, onions, Zuchini and yellow squash. Finely chopped and sauted in olive oil. This is more like grilled on high flame so that it doesnt leave any water.

Mix Macaroni, cheese, chat masala and salt. You can red chilli powder as well to make it spicy.

Heat the oven to 200C. Grease the muffin pan with olive oil. Put a nice layer of breadcrumbs. then fill the macaroni cheese mixture. Top it with little veggies and then more breadcrumbs. Spray more oil on it.

Bake it for 15 mins at 200C and then increase the temp to 350C and bake for another 5-10 mins till the top is golden and using a toothpick you can rotate the muffin.

Here are couple of  pics for this one:
