Baked Penne

This is a very simple meal to throw together quickly!  And more than likely, it’s stuff you will normally have on hand!  You will just need to vary the ingredients for how many you are serving.  Add a salad and some garlic bread and you’re all set 🙂

Pasta (I used penne, but lots of shapes will work just as well)

Tomato Sauce (I used Market District’s Tomato Basil)

Fresh Basil (if you have it, if not you can substitute dried)

Ricotta Cheese (Spend the time making it home made, you will notice a huge difference!)

Shredded Mozzarella Cheese

Cook the pasta according to the package directions in salted water.  While the pasta is draining, I heated up the sauce just a little bit with a handful of basil to give it great fresh flavor.  Layer the pasta into a large pan or individual dishes and add dollops of the ricotta cheese.  Layer that to the top of your cheese.  Sprinkle the top with shredded or grated mozzarella cheese and bake at 350 until the cheese is nice and bubbly.  The length of time will vary on how big your dish is.

About Hang Onto Your Fork

I am just a girl who loves to cook. I am happiest when friends and/ or family are sitting around my table enjoying a meal and sharing stories and laughter! I noticed myself spending a lot of time reading recipe sites, food blogs and cook books and finally decided to get in on the action! I am very much an amateur cook, and through the last couple of years have learned a lot through trial and error. So, I would like to invite you to join in my culinary triumphs and laugh at my kitchen disasters! I welcome any tips/ advice/ and comments that you may have!
