The Anti-Chicken Fingers Movement – Penne Pasta Bake

Thanksgiving Eve…Christmas Eve…Or even when all the turkey and leftovers are gone this Sunday, turn to this quick and easy, very satisfying Italian meal.  Add another 1/2 lb of beef if you’ve got meat lovers in the house.  Serve with salad and garlic bread.  This is another recipe direct from my mom’s kitchen, I changed it just a little from her original.  This is also a great dish to make ahead, freeze and then reheat.  A perfect solution to feed your family this holiday season or anytime of the year!  And don’t forget the red wine!

Penne Pasta Bake

  • 12 oz. penne pasta
  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 1 T oregano
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 15 oz. tomato sauce
  • 14 oz. canned tomatoes, pureed
  • 1 6 oz. can tomato paste
  • 4 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • Directions

    Cook pasta according to directions. Drain. Cook meat and onion in large skillet until browned. Drain. Stir in tomato sauce, pureed tomatoes, tomato paste, spices and 1/2 cup water. Cook, stirring occasionally, 10 minutes. Remove bay leaf.  Layer half pasta, half sauce and half cheese in 13×9″” baking dish. Repeat. Cover and bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 20 minutes.

    Buon Appetito!
