Welcome to another Cooking With Mom's The Word! Today we're making Penne Pasta Casserole. Are you ready? Let's get cooking!
This is a yummy meal and a favorite with our family and it's super easy to make! You can make it ahead and stick it in the fridge for a few hours or stick it in the freezer for another time. I get requests from the kids in the church youth group to bring this whenever there's an event where a meal is needed.
I found it on Hunts and here is a link to their recipe. I make mine a bit different as I'm using the original recipe that I found in a magazine awhile ago, so be sure and check their updated recipe too.
3 cups dry penne pasta
1 pound lean ground turkey (or ground beef)
2 cans (14.5 oz) basil, garlic and oregano diced tomatoes (also known as Italian Style), undrained
1 can (15 oz) tomato sauce
4 cups of mozzarella cheese (reserve one cup)
Brown the lean ground turkey, drain as needed. Forget to take a picture of it and so grab a blog photo that you've used before. Feel the need to explain that the meat was previously frozen and that's why it's in that shape. Realize that people don't really care but tell them anyway.
350°F, do not cover. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until bubbly and cheese is melted.
Tell your family that dinner is ready. Realize that you're not going to be able to take a "finished" picture for your blog because your family is racing you to the kitchen. Say "oh well" and enjoy!
