  1. Boil chicken with the water. The chicken must sink under the water level. Boil it until tender (around 20 - 40 minutes).
  2. Boil the pasta with a little salt and 2 or 3 drops of olive oil (to avoid the pasta stick each other) for 8 minutes.
  3. Cut all the vegetables in cube.                           
  4. Fry the red sauce (tomato sauce and all vegetables) in a small fire and add some broth (the water from the boiled chicken). Add salt and taste it when it boiled.   
  5. Drain the pasta and add it into the red sauce little by little and keep stir it until all blend.
Stage 2: Making the white sauce

  2. Add the chicken broth and keep stir.
  3. Dissolve the cornstarch+water in a cup then pour it into the white sauce.
  4. Taste it. Add salt if you think it is not enough. Add more cornstarch if the sauce is still too watery. 

Stage 3 :
  1. Pre-heat the oven 190 degrees Celcius around 15 minutes
  2. Seal the tray with butter and pour the pasta+red sauce into it. Then, flatten the surface 
  3. Add the white sauce on the pasta+red sauce                                       
  4. Bake it until the surface a little bit hard, take from the oven and add the cheese on it and bake it again                                                                                                      
  5. Bake for 20 - 30 minutes until the color turn to gold brown
