Baked Penne with Cheese

I found this recipe at Momtastic's Blog... they have some great recipes and home decorating ideas! This recipe for baked penne looks amazing!

Baked Penne with Cheese


  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup bread crumbs
  • 5 cups cooked penne pasta
  • 1 1/2 cups of your favorite tomato sauce
  • 1 cup grated mozzarella cheese
  • 2 teaspoons dried thyme
  • 1 cup vegetable or chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Remove 1/4 cup of the Parmesan cheese and combine it with the bread crumbs in a small bowl and set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the pasta with the tomato sauce, remaining parmesan cheese, mozzarella cheese, thyme, and broth.  Season generously with salt and pepper, and pour this mixture into a 2-quart, rectangular baking dish.

Sprinkle the top with the bread crumb mixture and drizzle with the olive oil.

Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 20 minutes.  If the top isn't browning, place the pan under the broiler for about 30 seconds, just until it becomes golden.
