Creamy Pasta Bake with Cherry Tomatoes and Basil Recipe




      Ingredients :

    • 1 (16 ounce) package penne pasta
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 1 onion, finely chopped
    • 3 cloves garlic, minced
    • 3 (6 ounce) cans tomato sauce
    • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
    • ¾ cup heavy whipping cream
    • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
    • salt and freshly ground black pepper
    • 1 pinch white sugar
    • 1 pound cherry tomatoes, halved
    • 1 ¼ cups shredded mozzarella cheese
    • 1 small bunch fresh basil, finely chopped
    • Methods :

    • Step 1

      Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add penne and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, about 11 minutes. Drain, reserving 1 cup of cooking water.

    • Step 2

      Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat and cook onion until soft and translucent while penne is cooking, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook an additional 30 seconds. Stir in tomato sauce and tomato paste and cook until slightly reduced, about 5 minutes. Add cream and Parmesan cheese and season with salt, pepper, and sugar.

    • Step 3

      Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease a baking dish.

    • Step 4

      Stir some pasta cooking water into the sauce and add cooked penne. Remove from heat and stir in cherry tomatoes, 1/2 the mozzarella cheese, and basil. Pour penne mixture into the prepared baking dish and cover with remaining mozzarella cheese.

    • Step 5

      Bake in the preheated oven until cheese is melted, about 20 minutes.
