Baked penne with spinach, roasted peppers, and Parmesan cheese

I pin a lot of recipes on Pinterest, but rarely do Timmy and I actually make them. When I saw this recipe on Pinterest, we had to give it a try. The result was so yummy, and the leftovers tasted just as delicious! Here is what ours looked like:

The original recipe has a lot of fat, so, to cut down a bit on it, we left out the bacon, and only used about half the cheese. I am the kind of person who adds more cheese to cheese, so, you can trust me when I say you won't miss the extra cheese. I also love bacon, and didn't miss that at all either. I think the next time we try this recipe, we are going to half the roux (flour+butter), to cut down on more fat; this will result in a wetter end result, however, I don't think I will mind.

This is what RecipeGirl's verision looked like:

  1. And now I know what I want for lunch. I'm totally going to hit up Noodles for some Pasta Fresca. But yours looks even better.


Let me know you are out there.
