Ragú® Recipe Contest Entry. This Bacon Feta Penne Pasta is decadent and delicious! Penne pasta tossed in a cheesy, creamy sauce with feta and bacon. It’s a perfect weeknight dinner.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 lb penne pasta
  • 16 ounces Ragú® Pasta Sauce (creamy mozzarella cheese)
  • 12 cup breadcrumbs
  • 8 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
  • 8 slices bacon, cooked and diced
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Directions

  1. Cook pasta as directed on package.
  2. While the pasta is cooking, cook the bacon as desired. (I like to bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes.
  3. Mix 4oz Feta with the Ragu® Creamy Mozzarella sauce and simmer over low heat to warm.
  4. Once the pasta is fully cooked, combine the noodles and sauce.
  5. Transfer pasta to a 9x13 baking dish.
  6. Top with remaining feta, breadcrumbs, and diced bacon.
  7. Place under the broiler on HI for 2-4 minutes, just until the feta is golden brown. Watch carefully so it does not burn.
  8. Season with salt and pepper and serve warm.
