Baked Pasta
  • Mamma Agata's tomato sauce
  • 1 lb pasta, (penne or orecchiette)
  • fresh mozzarella cheese, torn or sliced
  • basil, torn or chopped
  • Parmesan cheese
  1. Cook pasta according to the directions. Cook 2-3 minutes less than directed.
  2. In a baking dish put a layer of pasta, sauce, mozzarella, basil, and repeat. Finish your last layer with mozzarella.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes, or until the top is golden and bubbly. If you need to brown it more you can put on the broiler, but be careful not to burn it!
  4. Once you take it out of the oven, let it rest for 5-10 minutes.
  5. Serve and top with freshly grated Parmesan cheese.
