Cheezy Pasta with Vegetables

Bachelor cooking is a method of cooking which requires less amount of time, energy and ingredients. its definitely not gourmet cooking, but its ideal for single male/female who are bored of eating out every night but do not have time to cook for long hours. Today I will show you the most cooked dish in my kitchen. Its fast, its tasty, its healthy and it is so damn easy!

There are a lot of myths involving cheese in cooking. Trust me, the biggest myth buster was the fact that cheese is not a guilty pleasure. cheese supplies a great deal of calcium, protein, phosphorus and fat. A 30-gram of Cheddar cheese contains about 7 grams of protein and 200 milligrams of calcium. Nutritionally, cheese is essentially concentrated milk: it takes about 200 grams of milk to provide that much protein, and 150 grams to equal the calcium.
