Baked Penne with Fresh Mozzarella
1 lb dried penne pasta
2 jars Jamie Oliver Spicy Olive, Garlic, and Tomato Pasta Sauce
8 oz DLM Fresh Mozzarella, cut into small dice
Freshly ground black pepper
Fresh basil, chopped for garnish
Preheat oven to 350ºF. Bring a large pot of water to a boil, salt generously, and boil the pasta until al dente, tender but still slightly firm. Drain.
In a large bowl, toss the pasta with the sauce and the diced mozzarella. Transfer the pasta to a greased 9x13-inch baking dish. Bake in the oven until lightly browned and hot, about 20 minutes. Garnish with chopped fresh basil. Serve immediately. Yields about 3½ cups.
