How To Make Three Cheeses and Red Bell Pepper Fusilli
Have a deliciously cheesy meal with this fusilli recipe that has full and solid flavors from fontina, mozzarella, and parmesan, as well as red bell peppers.
In a medium frying pan, melt 1 tablespoon of butter over moderately low heat.
Add the bell peppers and ¼ teaspoon of salt and cook for about 10 minutes until soft.
Heat the broiler.
Butter a large shallow baking dish.
In a large pot of boiling, salted water, cook the fusilli for about 13 minutes until just done.
Drain and return to the hot pot.
Toss the pasta with the remaining 3 tablespoons butter and ¾ teaspoon of salt, the sautéed bell peppers, fontina, mozzarella, 3 tablespoons of parmesan, and black pepper.
Transfer the pasta to the prepared baking dish and sprinkle the remaining 3 tablespoons of parmesan over the top.
Broil for 3 to 4 minutes until the top starts to brown.
Serve with additional parmesan.
Cheese often turns stringy when tossed with hot pasta. Broiling the dish after tossing melts the strings into a smooth sauce.
