Order from Twisted London now!

No bother fussing to make a béchamel or cooking lasagna noodles! Layered bolognese with creamy coated penne bakes up beautifully for an easy spin on a lasagna!

Directions

  1. In a large saute pan, heat oil over medium heat.  Add onions and cook until softened, add garlic and cook until fragrant.  Add mince, breaking apart with a spoon and brown.
  2. Stir in tomato paste until coated. Cook for 2 minutes. Add red wine scraping the bottom of the pan to release the bits. Let reduce by half.
  3. Add the passata, salt, pepper and oregano.  Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer and cover. Cook until thickened.
  4. In a large bowl mix penne, ricotta cheese, half the mozzarella, parmesan, salt, pepper and cream.
  5. Layer bolognese into a dish, topped with pasta, more bolognese and finish with pasta later.  Top with remaining mozzarella cheese.
  6. Bake covered in a 180ºF oven for 30 minutes.  Grill for 5 minutes until golden brown.
  7. Enjoy!
