Mascarpone Baked Pasta

Mascarpone Baked Pasta

I love eating pasta, I think it’s a requirement at least two times a week for me. I generally make some sort of a tomato based sauce once a week but once in a while it’s good to mix it up. And what’s better then mixing it up with some cheese! Yes, please! This recipe is super easy to make it it is super filling!

Yes folks – mascarpone baked pasta. It’s like a super cheesy, creamy sauce with baked pasta and some panko bread crumbs. It is super rich a just so so good. You need to make this now!

You can just throw everything in an oven safe dish and let the oven do the baking and you get a nice crusty crust with the panko bread crumbs on top.

Ingredients
  1. 1 pound uncooked penne pasta
  2. 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  3. 3 cups of cold milk
  4. 1 cup of shredded Gouda cheese
  5. 1 cup of shredded fontina cheese
  6. 3/4 cup of mascarpone cheese
  7. 3/4 teaspoon salt
  8. 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  9. 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  10. 1 1/2 cup of Panko bread crumbs
  11. 2 teaspoons of fresh minced garlic
  12. 1 1/2 tablespoons chopped parsley
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Cooks pasta according to package directions. Drain; keep warm.
  3. While your pasta is cooking, lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup. Combine flour, milk and dijon mustard in a large saucepan over medium heat, stirring with a whisk. Cook 10 minutes or until thick (about the time it takes your pasta to cook). Remove from heat; add cheeses, stirring with a whisk until smooth. Stir in your salt and pepper. Next, add your cooked pasta, stirring to coat the pasta with your creamy cheese sauce. Spoon pasta mixture and any sauce into a greased 9 x 9 baking dish.
  4. Next, put your saucepan back on the burner; low heat. Add your Panko bread crumbs and garlic until warmed. Sprinkle breadcrumb mixture over pasta.
  5. Cook pasta in oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown.
  6. Enjoy!
Notes
  1. You can eat this pasta dish alone or add some cooked chicken breasts to the pasta mixture. It also pairs well with a cooked sausage as well.
