How To Make Mozzarella Penne
Creamy mozzarella makes everything better, and this is especially true for this penne recipe. This simple pasta dish also has Italian sausage and herbs.
In a large skillet, heat oil. Add onion and garlic, stir. Add sausage, breaking up well. Add tomato sauce and spices, let simmer.
Fill a pot with water and set on high heat. Once boiling, add salt and pasta. Cook el dente.
On med-low heat, melt butter in a saucepan. When melted, add flour and stir until smooth.
Whisk continually for about 5 minutes until mixture is light golden brown. Add milk a little bit at a time, stirring constantly until it’s thick. Add a pinch of salt.
Using a 9×13-inch pan, layer a small amount of red sauce to the bottom of the pan. The layering process is as follows: pasta, red sauce, bechamel then mozzarella. Do this a total of 3 times.
Sprinkle more mozzarella and parmesan on top.
Bake at 400 degrees F for 20 to 30 minutes until golden and bubbly. Enjoy warm.
