Penne Al Telefono


penne pasta
olive oil
garlic, minced
onions, minced
bacon, sliced
diced tomatoes in can
1/2 cup water
1 1/2 chicken stock
spaghetti sauce
mozzarella, cubed
basil, chopped
2 cups all purpose cream
salt and pepper, to taste


1. Boil pasta, al dente, and set it aside
2. Saute garlic and onion. Fry bacon. 
3. Add the diced tomatoes in can and let things simmer. 
4. Add the spaghetti sauce and basil. Season with salt and pepper. Add the chicken stock. 
5. Add the cream and let it simmer until the sauce is thick. 
6. Add the mozzarella until the cheese has melted.
7. Bring the pasta into the pan and make sure you coat it well with the sauce. 

Penne Al Telefono, is a classic Cibo pasta dish. This is a hack that I acquired online for quite some time now, but tried just today. Am I happy about it? Super! I did a few alterations, though, such as adding bacon and using spaghetti sauce to increase sauce yield (so feel free to take out the spaghetti sauce). This is simple to do but as it is my first time to handle mozzarella this way, I didn't realize that it's so sticky and messy. Transferring the coated pasta from the pan to the container was a little tricky while the cheese is hot and stringy, so let it set for a while. If you want to enjoy it that way, though, by all means go ahead because messy is always FUN!
