Salami Cheese Pasta Bake using Long Life Ingredients

From Cookipedia

In the advent of the Coronavirus event and being mindful of cooking with long life ingredients, I thought I would do some experiments with pasta. This is the successful result of a few experiments.

All of the ingredients are long life and make a pretty reasonable meal even after they have been stored for many months.

The only item that might be more difficult to source is the cheese powder, although cheese can be successfully frozen, so you could use that.
