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

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