Pasta Al Forno

 

Ingredients

  • 1 pound rigatoni pasta
  • 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 large eggplant, cubed
  • 10 large sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
  • 15 infornate olives, pitted and chopped
  • 2 dried chile peppers, crushed, optional
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 25 ounce jar tomato puree
  • Salt
  • 12 ounces freshly grated mozzarella
  • Smoked scamorza cheese, as much as desired, roughly chopped
  • Freshly grated Parmigiano cheese, for sprinkling

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

While the rigatoni cooks in salted boiling water, prepare the sauce.

In a saucepan heat up the olive oil and saute the eggplant, sun-dried tomatoes, olives, chile peppers, if using, and garlic, for a few minutes.

Add the tomato puree and salt. Let the sauce cook for approximately 10 minutes on medium heat.

Drain the rigatoni; add the pasta to the saucepan, sprinkle with some Parmigiano and cook for another 30 seconds. Then place 1/2 the rigatoni in a baking dish, adding a layer of 1/2 the mozzarella, 1/2 the scamorza and another sprinkle of Parmigiano cheese over the pasta.

Add the remaining rigatoni, and follow with a final layer of all the cheeses. Bake for 20 to 30 minutes or until golden brown.
