Pasta Al Forno

"This recipe by TV chef David Rocco was originally made with scamorza, which is a smoked mozzarella. I wasn't able to get any so I used fontina instead. The measurements given for the cheeses are what I used as the original recipe was to taste."

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

  • In a saucepan, heat up the olive oil and saute the garlic, eggplant, olives, tomatoes and red pepper flakes for about 5 minutes.
  • Add the tomato puree and salt to taste.
  • Let cook for about 10 minutes on medium heat.
  • Drain the rigatoni, add to the saucepan, sprinkle with 2 tablespoons parmesan and cook for another 30 seconds.
  • Place half the rigatoni in a 9" x 13" baking dish, adding a layer of half of the mozzarella, half of the fontina and half of the remaining parmesan.
  • Add the remaining rigatoni and follow with a final layer of all of the cheeses.

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY

<p>I live with my husband, four cats, and a sweet mutt named Jada in Scarborough, Ontario, where I work as an elementary school administrative assistant. I have a 31 year old daughter who lives with her boyfriend in nearby Don Mills, along with my sweet granddogs, Frankie and Turbo. I would have to say that my passion is animals, since I have so many of them! <br /><img src=http://images.quizilla.com/H/h0t5auce/1108834307_brown_answer.jpg alt= /> <br /><img src=http://www.recipezaar.com/members/home/532663/cookswithcattitude.JPG alt= /> <br /><img src=http://i146.photobucket.com/albums/r271/copperhorse58/CalendarGirlsSwap2009.jpg alt= /> <br /><br />If I had a month off work to do what I please, I would first catch up on my sleep and then just have fun - see a few movies and maybe take a couple of short trips - something that wouldn't break the bank - lol!</p>
