This sauce was created when I had several leftover ingredients from some PW dishes. It’s very easy and is a family favorite, from my hubby to my toddler.
Oh–and I’m not even sure if this counts as tuscan. To me, tuscan food is flavorful, simple, and includes sausage. This is why I decided to use the title disclaimer “Mock Toscana.”
Spinach, ricotta, mozzarella and parmesan fill the rolled up lasagna noodles, and a bechamel sauce tops the rolls before baking. As a finishing touch, a simple olive oil, onion, diced tomato and fresh basil sauce simmers while the pasta bakes. Delicious!
This is a fairly quick, easy and oh so flavorful meal. It requires minimal ingredients, preparation, and just two pans. The vegetables and sausage are oven-roasted and then they are quickly combined with the cooked penne to form a simple sauce. Oh, and it’s pretty darn healthy, too.
This recipe was invented by ME – a busy mom who couldn’t make her weekly trip to the grocery store and had to use what was on hand. This dish is delicious, full of vegetables and very filling! Best of all, my family didn’t just eat it, they liked it! All my children, from ages 3-10, and their 35-year-old father loved it!
