Still can’t get enough of Contadina sauces! And since the last recipe I did was super easy, I challenged myself to make a more elaborate one. Nasobrahan yata ako sa challenge haha. For Noche Buena, I made Baked Penne with Italian Meatballs in Bechamel Sauce.
This is the most elaborate and super sarap pasta recipe I did so far. Move over spaghetti! And will I do it again? Yes na yes and promise I will make a video out of it. Na stress ako sa first time so I never got the chance to record. Here are the recipes I used to make this dish the best pasta dish ever.
Italian Meatballs Recipe from Contadina Website:
This is super easy to make pala! I have been wondering how meatballs are made and this recipe is super easy and swak na swak. Only, I replaced fennel with anise seed and used only half. Anise seed kase is stronger and fennel is hard to find 🙂
Baked Ziti Recipe
- 500 grams Contadina Penne Pasta
- 1/2 cup cream cheese
- 1/4 cup grated romano cheese
- 420 grams Contadina Aglio Arrostito Pasta Sauce
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
*Preheat oven to 350 F
1. Cook Penne according to packaging. (Do not rinse off under water!)
2. In a big bowl, combine cream cheese, romano cheese, pepper and sauce (reserve 1/4)
3. Combine penne and sauce.
4. In a pan, spread the 1/4 cup reserved sauce, add the penne mixture and top with Mozzarella.
5. Cover with foil and bake until mozzarella is melted (12 to 15 minutes).
Kaya sya elaborate because that’s 3 things you need to cook but sabi ko nga, it was worth it.
To serve, arrange pasta + white sauce then top with meatballs and parmesan cheese.
