5.Heat oil and butter in a separate pan, add chopped onion, chopped garlic, onion powder, garlic powder, dried oregano salt, and black pepper powder, and mix it well.

6.Add vegetables and little water then stir and cook veggies until  50% done. Now add the half-cooked pasta and then add the white sauce prepared earlier with grated processed cheese and mozzarella cheese in the half-cooked veggies and then cook for a while and remove it in a bowl.

7. Garnish the pasta with chopped jalapeno, chopped olive, and grated cheese, and then bake at 180 degrees for about 8 to 10 mins.
