Pasta Bake Recipe

1. Chopped Bacon and Onion, 2. Pasta Sauce Cooking, 3. Baked Penne Pasta, 4. Baked Penne Pasta For Kids

What I love about this recipe is that it is quick, easy and tasty. I actually time it last week and from start to finish it took only 27 minutes and that included taking photos and having a baby on one hip for over half of it, so I am sure you could do it in 20 minutes with a little bit of pace. Although it cooks up quite a big dish, it is a light dish, so there is never very much left over from this meal for us any more.

Baked Penne Pasta Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 8 Rash Bacon Shortcut Rindless
  • 500 Ml Pasta Sauce
  • 2 Teaspoon Garlic Minced
  • 1 Large Onion Brown
  • 300 Ml Cream
  • 1 Cup Cheese Parmesan Grated
  • 2 Tablespoon Oil Olive
  • 500 Gram Pasta Penne

Instructions:
This is a very quick to cook dish, that will feeds a lot of people and it reheats quite well.

  1. Boil water for pasta
  2. Finely chop onion.
  3. Cut bacon into thin strips approx 2cm x .1 cm.
  4. Heat oil in a large frying pan (I use an electric frying pan.)
  5. When heated to a moderate heat cook bacon to desired taste. I like it a bit crispy.
  6. Add onion and garlic and cook for another couple of minutes.
  7. Place pasta into boiling water.
  8. Add pasta sauce to frying pan and turn down heat slightly. Allow to simmer for 3 – 4 minutes.
  9. Add cream to frying pan and mix well. Turn up heat slightly, allow to bubble then reduce heat and allow to thicken.
  10. Heat grill on high.
  11. Drain pasta.
  12. Add pasta to the frying pan and combine well.
  13. Pour contents of the pan into a lasagne style dish and even out. Top with grated parmesan and place under the grill until cheese has melted and is a golden brown colour.
  14. Serve with some warm garlic bread!
