Share a Spoon ~ Pastalicious

Happy Thursday!  It's time once again to Share A Spoon with Momma B!

This week's theme is PASTA!
I know everyone has a fave pasta dish to share!  So type it up and link it up!  I wanna know what you're eating!

P.S. I know Momma B is hoping for some non-Italiano type pasta recipes, so if you have a killer stroganoff, kugel, spaetzel, or yakisoba type recipe, I beg of you -

I don't happen to have any non-Italian pasta recipes, so I'm gonna share with you my monsters' kids' favorite:

Baked Mostaccoli

What you need:
1 box mostaccoli noodles
1 pound hot Italian sausage (I like Jimmy Dean)
1 pound ground turkey (or beef)
salt (I use kosher)
2 jars spaghetti sauce (I like Classico)
2 pounds mozzarella cheese

What you do:
Cook noodles according to directions on the box.
Preheat oven to 325.
Brown off Italian sausage and ground turkey.  Drain grease and season to taste.
Combine noodles, meat, and sauce.
Pour mixture into 9x13 baking dish and cover with cheese.
Baked until cheese is all melty and bubbly, browning on the edges!

Let set for a few minutes once you remove it from oven so it is easily cut and served.  We top it with fresh grated parmesan.  Serve with your favorite Italian accompaniments.

Yes, I made this on Tuesday.  No, I didn't take pictures. Deal!

Mmmmm...I'm with Momma B on the oooey gooey cheese. And you can make it ahead. That works too. Make ahead and bake later....

I know the Hubs would love this!

I wonder if I could make it with fat free cheese...? Then maybe I could have some.

I don't even know what mostaccoli is. I am very special.

Sounds yummy and pretty easy too. I read a hilarious quote about recipes the other day: "I read recipes the same way I read science fiction. I get to the end and I think, well that's not going to happen" This recipe, though, I think I could do! Thanks for sharing it. :)

Yum, I love pasta! said...

Sounds extremely yummy! One thing I love about the fall/winter is that I get back to doing some real cooking! THIS one is on my list of "to do" dishes!

I love baked mostaccioli so much! I tried it at The Olive Garden for the first time and now I'm hooked! Thanks for the recipe.
