Pasta alla Formiana

Submitted by: FITNESSFOODIE

Introduction

Easy weeknight dinner and one that the kids love! Serve with a salad of romaine and whole wheat baguette. Based on a recipe by Giada DeLaurentis, I've reduced the olive oil and added parmesan cheese.

Ingredients

    Cooking spray
    1 (28-ounce) can crushed tomatoes
    1 clove garlic, coarsely chopped
    1/2 pound (8 ounces) mezze penne or other small pasta
    2 tbs olive oild for drizzling
    1/4 cup dried oregano
    2 teaspoons kosher salt
    1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    4 to 5 very ripe, extra-large or beefsteak tomatoes, cut into 1/2-inch thick slices
    1/4 c grated Parmesan cheese

Directions

Put an oven rack in the center of the oven. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Butter an 8 by 8-inch glass baking dish. Set aside.

In a food processor, blend together the crushed tomatoes and garlic. Pour into a medium bowl and add the uncooked pasta, 1/4 cup olive oil, oregano, salt, and pepper. Toss until all the ingredients are coated.

Line the bottom and sides of the baking dish with tomato slices. Pour the pasta mixture into the pan and spread evenly. Arrange the remaining tomato slices in an overlapping layer on top of the pasta mixture, making sure the mixture is completely covered. Drizzle with olive oil. Bake for 30 minutes then sprinkle with Parmesan. Bake until the tomatoes are slightly crispy and the pasta is cooked, about 30 minutes more. Remove from the oven and cool for 5 minutes before serving. Buon Appetito!
