A ton of cheese...with some Penne

More Pinterest inspiration!

[Originally from Recipe Girl]


Penne with fire roasted tomato, roasted bell peppers, bacon & spinach (and a whole lotta cheese!)





Diced Roasted Peppers & Chopped Spinach


To the left, to the left- Fire Roasted tomato soup with milk being brought to a low bubble
To your right- melting butter (soon to be whisked with some flour and added to the soup to thicken)


Mix all together in a big bowl: sauce, veggies, and cooked penne


Three cheeses! Chopped provolone, 6 ounces ricotta, and shredded parmesean.


Assemble in casserole dish and start salivating over the amazing aroma of...



...Bacon!

Top the casserole off with crumbled bacon, add a little more parmesean (why the heck not?) on top and bake for 30 min!


Viola!


The dish had a good, subtle flavor.  However, I actually expected more of a tastebud explosion.  Next time I would make the tomato base sauce a little more flavorful with some more roasted peppers, red pepper flakes, or something. Husband and baby approved.

"This seems like something from a restaurant...because, you know, it has weird stuff in it."

 Thanks, Jud! I will take that as a compliment!
