I was expecting this dish to be "just another pasta dish", but it was surprisingly SO delicious. Brian, who doesn't normally like pasta, ate it up and went back for seconds. To top it all off, it comes together super fast and incorporates ingredients that most of you will already have on hand.
Tomato and Mozzarella Pasta Al Forno
Recipe from Annie's Eats
2 Tbs. olive oil
2 garlic cloves, crushed
2- 14 oz. cans diced Italian tomatoes
1 tsp. dried oregano
Salt and pepper, as desired
1 lb. penne pasta
8 oz. mozzarella cheese, cubed
2/3 cup. parmesan cheese
Heat oil in skillet. Add garlic and cook over medium-high heat for one minutes. Add tomatoes and oregano and simmer rapidly, stirring occasionally until thickened, about 15 minutes. Add salt and pepper. Meanwhile, cook pasta according to package directions. Toss pasta with sauce. Place half of your pasta in an oiled 9X13 dish. Cover with half parmesan and half mozzarella. Top with remaining pasta, then parmesan and mozzarella. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes.
