Sunday… Lazy Sunday…. Actually my son loves Sundays as we get to enjoy “ Pajamas Day”. Well he does… With a bit if time on my hands this morning, I decided to prepare dinner early and join him in the “dolce far niente” for the rest of the day.
Timballo di Pasta is one of those dishes that can be prepared as wished. We love peas and ham. Easy prepared, great left overs. A nice green salad works well as a side dish.
From my family to yours, enjoy your Sunday.
Today’s February 5, 2012 dinner:
Timballo di Pasta
TIMBALLO DI PASTA
1 box of Ziti pasta
Shredded mozzarella cheese
Ham cut in small pieces
Preheat the oven at 375 º. Cook the pasta al dente in a large pot of salted water. In the meantime prepare the béchamel sauce. Add the mozzarella, the peas and the ham.
When pasta is done, drain and put back in the cooking pot. Add the béchamel sauce and stir well and put into a large Pyrex baking pan and place in the hot oven for 30 minutes or until the top is starting to brown.
