Tasty Tuesday- Cheesy Oven Baked Penne


You will need:

800 gr/28 oz (two 14 oz cans) Italian diced tomato
1 package penne pasta
300 gr/10 oz fresh mozzarella cheese, shredded or sliced
250 gr/8 oz formaggio cheese, shredded
300 gr/10 oz package mushroom
1 onion diced
2 cloves garlic chopped
Olive oil
Salt, pepper, oregano and basil to taste

Preheat olive oil in a large pan and add the diced onion and garlic. Fry them for a couple of minutes and add the sliced mushrooms with half of the tomatoes. Stir everything and leave for another 2-3 minutes. Add the rest of the tomatoes, the oregano, basil, salt and pepper. Saute everything together for another 10-15 min on low heat while you cook your pasta (don’t overcook it because it’s going in the oven afterwords).

When the pasta is ready pour it in a baking dish and add some butter. Mix them together and add the tomato & mushroom sauce.  Cover with the shredded formaggio and layer fresh mozzarella slices on top.

Place in oven at 400 F/200 C for 15 about minutes to bake until cheese is melted.

PS: If you want it and like it more saucy, add one can of tomato puree.
