As I was saying in my last post, Thomas and I were having a lazy weekend here in Missouri and I didn't feel like going out. The weather was cold, rainy, and snuggling under a nice warm blanket sounded so much better than being cold and wet. So what did we do about dinner???? We had leftover ingredients from the Margharita Pizza recipe, some sweet sausage in the frig and a box of pasta which is a staple in our house so I set out to create another fast and easy meal. Here it is! Hope you try it and like it. Let me know how it tastes!!!
Note: I put approximately 2 tablespoons of Olive Oil to my water to keep the penne from sticking together.
You can't have a pasta dish without some cheeeezzzzy garlic bread. Fortunately, I had a loaf of Italian bread that we had made sandwiches with during the week and it was going to go bad.
I melted butter and garlic powder together, basted the loaf with my butter mixture, and covered it with a combination of parmesan cheese, mozzarella, provolone, asiago, fontina, and roman cheeses. I baked the bread at 350 degrees until the cheese was melted and the edges were starting to brown.
