For the past week I have been trying new and different recipes from kraft Philadelphia cooking cream. This baked penne is by far the most delicious. My boys were in for second and third helpings.
Keeps these mouth watering recipes coming!!! Thanks!!
We thought the Baked Penne was scumptious! I did change things a bit for my DH. I used twice the amount of beef and halved the pasta. We really enjoyed the meal. I served it with a fresh veggie salad and buttered whole wheat french bread. I will definitely be making this again.
This was very good taste-wise, though I thought it was a bit soupy. I made some minor adjustments according to what I had on hand - red not green pepper, rigatoni instead of penne, and Monterey jack instead of mozzarella. I'm always annoyed by recipes that call for a measured amount of already cooked pasta as I have no idea what it would be uncooked; because it looked like A LOT of sauce, I ended up using 7 oz (uncooked weight) and next time would probably use 8 oz or more. I cooked it uncovered for the full 20 minutes as I didn't see any reason to cover it for such a short time (and it came out perfectly melted and ever-so-slightly browned on top). Would be great with more vegetables mixed in and served with garlic bread (which I didn't have, but will next time I make this!) Thanks!
I made this recipe with a few adjustments, since I had to make it with what I had around the house. Meaning, I didn't have ground beef, onions, green pepper, or the cooking creme. I substituted the ground beed with summer sausage, and took out the onion and pepper completely. Then I made my own version of the creme with cream cheese, lemon juice, and italian herbs. In the end, this recipe still came out wonderful (:
