Pasta Al Forno Con Pomodori E Mozzarella

I am submitting this recipe for Pasta Al Forno Con Pomodori E Mozzarella to Presto Pasta Nights, which is being hosted this week by  Alisha of Cook, Craft, Enjoy!

Why I made this dish:

I, like so many other people I know, have a collection of recipe books that I have never used. In December 2010 the dogs (read Dave) bought me Jamie’s Italy. I love the way Jamie Oliver writes his recipes books, but I very seldom turn to them to make a dish from them. Because of this, I decided to set a challenge last month where you could choose a recipe book you have never used, and then choose a recipe to make. I made my recipe in time to submit it to my own challenge, but I did not have time to post it. So, as usual, I am late.

Pasta Al Forno Con Pomodori E Mozzarella

This pasta recipe is baked and has a base of tomatoes and is topped with mozzarella. It appears on page 114 of Jamie’s Italy, and is really simple. You make a basic tomato pasta sauce, add some fresh basil. You then layer this with some cooked pasta, Parmesan cheese and top it off with mozzarella. This is baked at 200° Celsius for 15 minutes .

  1. Did you like it, Tandy? I’m usually given his books as gifts, and I have to admit that I’ve rarely followed any of his recipes. Inspired by them, yes, to create something but never to follow step by step.

    1. I also only usually use his recipes as inspiration, but this one I followed to the letter, and it was very good πŸ™‚

  2. Tandy, I love Jamie Oliver cookbooks, and find I use them all the time! I haven’t bought the Italy book though, so thank you for showing me part of what it offers. This looks delicious, and just the sort of thing we like to eat!

  3. I think I must get myself that cookbook. Maybe if I drop a few hints nearer to my Birthday. πŸ˜‰ Love your pic Tandy…. it looks so delicious that I could eat some right now for breakfast. πŸ˜‰ xxx

  4. Looks delicious Tandy! Jamie Oliver is one of my favorite Celebrity Chef’s. Haven’t tried this one but think I will now. πŸ™‚ Yummy!

  5. I love Jamie’s recipes because they are so simple. I’ve got a couple of his cookbooks but haven’t used either for quite a while either.

  6. I too, love a good baked pasta dish and I am simply in love with what you’ve made. Just delicious. Yup, this makes my lunch look bad lol

  7. This has to be one of my mumΒ΄s “signature” dishes, she makes an amazing pasta al forno and we ate it on our first night in London last week!
