I used what I had for vegetables, which was free carrots, celery, and onions.. I sautéed them on the stove top first, then put them into a baking dish while the oven heated up to 400degrees. Meanwhile, I got the sauce and noodle going.. when everything was done, I stired in the noodles and the sauce to the baking dish, and tossed it back into the oven for 15mins. It was delicious.
