AMORE® CREAMY BOW TIE CASSEROLE
Ricotta, mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses give this pasta casserole creamy richness while the Amore Tomato and Pesto Pastes give it rich color and flavor.
In a large bowl, whisk together the Amore Tomato and Pesto Pastes with the ricotta until smooth. Whisk in the milk.
Cook the pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water until tender. Drain well.
Toss the pasta with the tomato paste mixture. Stir in the mozzarella, peas, cherry tomatoes, and half of the Parmesan.
Spread the pasta in a buttered 9-inch square baking dish. Sprinkle with the remaining Parmesan.
Cover with foil and bake in a 350F oven 30 minutes. Uncover and bake 15 minutes more or until browned and bubbly. Serve hot.
