Baked Rigatoni al Telefono with Smoked Mozzarella

Got kids (or adults) who won’t eat eggplant/aubergine? I do, but they eat this because it’s fun, not to mention delicious. The best time to make this southern Italian–inspired dish is in mid to late summer, when eggplants/aubergines are in abundance at farmers’ markets and you can take your pick of the younger ones — firm, fleshy, and no bitter juices.

Ingredients

  • Vegetable oil for greasing the baking dish and for frying
  • 1 ½–2 pounds small purple eggplants/aubergines, cut into large cubes
  • 1 batch fresh tomato sauce or Simple Tomato Sauce, heated to a simmer
  • 1 pound dried rigatoni, penne, cavatappi, or other short, sturdy pasta shape
  • 8 ounces smoked scamorza cheese, shredded, if available
  • 8 ounces smoked mozzarella, shredded or cut into small cubes (plus additional 8 ounces if not using smoked scamorza)
  • ¼ cup shredded fresh basil leaves
  • Kosher or fine sea salt
  • ½ cup freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese

Directions

Bring a large pot of water to a rolling boil and salt generously. Lightly coat a 9-by-13-inch baking dish with vegetable oil and set aside.

Pour vegetable oil to a depth of ¼-inch into a large frying pan and heat over medium-high heat. Place a platter lined with a double layer of paper towels/absorbent paper or a large, plain brown-paper bag near the stove.

Add the eggplant/aubergine cubes to the hot oil in small batches to avoid crowding the pan, and fry, turning them a couple of times, for about 5 minutes total, or until golden brown on all sides. Use a slotted spoon to remove the eggplant cubes to the prepared platter. Repeat until all the cubes are fried.

Transfer the fried eggplant to a large bowl and spoon a little of the tomato sauce on top. Gently toss the cubes with the sauce until the cubes are evenly coated. Set aside.

Heat the oven to 375 degrees.

Add the pasta to the boiling water, stir to separate, and cook according to the manufacturer’s instructions until not quite al dente. They should be slightly underdone, as they will finish cooking in the oven. Drain the pasta in a colander set in the sink, reserving about 1 cup of the cooking water.

Transfer the pasta to a very large bowl and spoon about two-thirds of the sauce over it. Gently toss the pasta and sauce to combine thoroughly. Add the eggplant, smoked mozzarella, smoked scamorza, and basil to the bowl. Using a large wooden spoon or spatula, gently toss the pasta, eggplant, cheeses, and basil together. Taste and add salt, if you like.

Spoon the pasta mixture into the prepared baking dish and spoon some additional sauce on top. You may not need all of the remaining sauce. Use just enough to keep the pasta moist, so that it will absorb the liquid and finish cooking in the oven. Sprinkle the Parmigiano cheese on top. Cover the dish with aluminum foil.

Bake for 15 minutes. Uncover and bake for 15–20 minutes longer, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly and the top is nicely browned and crisp around the edges. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.


    • 2 pounds eggplant, cut into 1-inch cubes
    • 1 cup olive oil
    • 1 medium onion, chopped
    • 2 1/2 cups marinara sauce (homemade or use 24 to 26 ounce bottled sauce)
    • 1 pound dried rigatoni
    • 1 pound cold mozzarella (preferably salted fresh), cut into 1/2-inch cubes
    1. Toss eggplant with 2 teaspoon salt in a colander. Drain 30 minutes. Rinse, then squeeze out excess liquid and pat dry.
    2. Preheat oven to 350°F with rack in middle.
    3. Heat oil in a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat until it shimmers. Fry eggplant in 3 batches, stirring occasionally, until browned, about 5 minutes per batch. Transfer with a slotted spoon to paper towels to drain.
    4. Discard all but 2 tablespoons oil from skillet, then sauté onion with 1/4 teaspoon each of salt and pepper until golden, about 8 minutes. Stir in sauce and eggplant and simmer 5 minutes.
    5. Meanwhile, cook rigatoni in a pasta pot of boiling salted water (2 tablespoons salt for 6 quart water) until al dente, then drain. Stir together pasta, sauce, and half of mozzarella in pot. Transfer to a 3-quart baking dish and sprinkle with remaining mozzarella. Bake until cheese is melted and golden in spots, about 45 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

    Recipe Summary

    • 4 tablespoons olive oil
    • 1 cup diced onion
    • 1 teaspoon salt, plus more to taste
    • 2 cloves garlic, crushed (or more to taste)
    • 1 pinch red pepper flakes
    • 1 (28 ounce) can San Marzano (Italian) tomatoes, blended smooth
    • ½ cup water (to rinse out can of tomatoes)
    • 1 (8 ounce) package uncooked rigatoni pasta
    • ½ cup fresh basil leaves, thinly sliced
    • 4 tablespoons cold butter, cubed
    • 1 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, plus more for serving

    Heat olive oil in saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onions, salt. Cook until no longer white and starting to turn translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in garlic cook about 1 minute. Add chili flakes and blended tomato sauce. Bring to a simmer adjust heat to medium to medium-low. Simmer gently, stirring occasionally, for 45 to 60 minutes. Reduce heat to low.

    Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook rigatoni in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until tender yet firm to the bite, about 8 minutes (5 minutes from doneness).

    Add about 2/3 of the basil to the sauce. Stir in butter. When butter melts, add cheese in 3 increments.

    Drain pasta transfer to sauce. Stir until rigatoni are evenly coated with sauce. Serve sprinkled with the remaining basil and a dusting of grated cheese.

    • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
    • kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

    Method

    Step 1

    Preheat oven to 350 F (175 C).

    Step 2

    Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over medium-high heat. Add rigatoni and cook,according cooking instructions. Drain and rinse under cold water and set aside.

    Step 3

    Sweat the diced eggplants. Sprinkle with coarse sea salt and place in a colander lined with paper towels. Close with a lid and allow to sweat for about 1 hour. Remove sweated diced eggplants from the colander. Pat dry with paper towels.

    Step 4

    In a large saute pan,heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add eggplants and saute until golden,for about 4-5 minutes. Using a slotted spoon,transfer eggplants to a plate and set aside.

    Step 5

    Using the same olive oil,sauté the onions over medium-high heat,stirring occasionally, until soft (for about 10 minutes). Stir in minced garlic and saute for a further 5 minutes. Stir in canned tomatoes with reserved juice,tomato paste, eggplant, red pepper flakes, oregano, parsley, brown sugar and salt and pepper to taste. Bring mixture to boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer,stirring occasionally,for about 15 minutes.

    Step 6

    Remove pan from the heat. Stir in fresh basil and chopped plum tomatoes.

    Step 7

    Spoon 1 cup (250 ml) of tomato sauce over the bottom of a 1 ½ quart lasagna pan. Toss cooked rigatoni with another cup of sauce. Beginning with the pasta, layer with smoked mozzarella cheese and sauce 2 times. Sprinkle the top evenly with grated Parmesan cheese.


    Baked rigatoni with aubergine & mozzarella

    Preheat the oven to fan 140C/conventional 160C/gas 3. Halve the tomatoes through their equator, rather than their core. Stand them cut-side up on a shallow baking tray (I use a nonstick Swiss roll tin). Scatter a little salt, pepper and sugar over the cut surfaces and drizzle with extra virgin olive oil. Roast for 45 minutes.

    Meanwhile, slice the aubergine into rounds, brush both sides with oil and spread out in one layer on another tray. After the tomatoes have been roasting for 45 minutes, put the aubergines in with them and roast for another 45 minutes.

    Towards the end of the time, cook the pasta in plenty of gently boiling well-salted water until nearly al dente – it should be undercooked because it finishes off in the oven. Drain well and tip into a large bowl. Have ready 4 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil mixed with the crushed garlic and chopped olives. Toss the oil mixture through the pasta and turn half of it into a 2-21⁄2 litre ovenproof dish.

    Remove the tomatoes and aubergines from the oven. (You can prepare them up to 24 hours ahead.)

    Turn up the oven to fan 180C/conventional 200C/gas 6. Scatter half the tomatoes and their juices over the pasta in the dish. Roughly tear the basil leaves and scatter on top. Drain the mozzarella, pat dry with kitchen paper, then slice very thinly. Lay two-thirds of the slices over the tomatoes. Grind black pepper over, and scatter over the aubergine. Add the rest of the pasta, top with the remaining tomatoes and mozzarella and then the parmesan. (Can be made up to here 3-4 hours in advance). Bake for 20-25 minutes, until piping hot and the top is extra crusty. Serve hot with a sprinkle of basil and extra parmesan.


    Baked Pasta Sicilian Style(Sicilian Pasta al Forno)

    1 and 3/4 lbs rigatoni pasta
    1 cup tomato sauce
    3 eggplants
    Extra virgin olive oil for frying
    1/2 lb meatballs made by cooking meat sauce thick and forming it into balls
    1/4 lb mild sausage, coarsely chopped
    1/3 lb fresh mozzarella cheese, diced
    1 and 1/4 cups grated pecorino cheese with peppercorns inside.
    1/2 cup bread crumbs
    Salt and pepper

    It will take about 1 and 1/2 hours to prepare.

    Begin by preparing the meat sauce, while it's cooking slice the eggplants into half-inch slices, salt the slices and let them sit in a colander for an hour.

    Rinse the slices, pat them dry, fry them in hot olive oil (a few at a time), then drain them on absorbent paper and slice them into strips.

    Boil the pasta in lightly salted water and drain it while it's still 'al dente'.

    Once you have assembled the ingredients, oil a pan large enough to hold them and preheat your oven to 360F.

    Lay down a first layer of pasta and dot it with meat balls and strips of eggplant.

    Lay down another layer of pasta and more meatballs and eggplant, continuing until all is used up distribute the diced mozzarella over the top layer, together with the sliced egg and the bread crumbs.

    Heat through in the oven for about 20 minutes and serve. Serves 8 or more.


    Cheesy Baked Pasta Recipe

    Pasta al Forno sounds fancy, doesn&rsquot it? But it&rsquos actually one of the most no-frills Italian dishes around. It&rsquos basically baked pasta, similar to lasagna or a chicken parmesan casserole, and equally as delicious and comforting.

    The cooking process is incredibly easy, too! The simple meat sauce takes minutes. You toss the rigatoni with it, place in the pan, pile the mozzarella on top and bake. In less than an hour, you have a dinner hit on your hands! Need to feed a big group? Double or triple the dish easily.

    I love making a big batch because let&rsquos face it, cheesy pasta makes the best kind of leftovers. Especially when it&rsquos as good as this!

    What does Pasta al forno mean?

    In Italian, the words &ldquoal Forno&rdquo loosely translate to &ldquofrom the stove,&rdquo aka oven baked. So quite literally, this dish means baked pasta!

    What is al forno style?

    It&rsquos a Northern Italian style of cooking that involves baking food in a wood-fired brick oven. Common dishes done this way are bread, traditional Italian pizzas, and pasta.

    What does al dente mean?

    The term means &ldquoto the tooth&rdquo in Italian. It refers to pasta that&rsquos cooked until it has a firm bite, which is when it feels and tastes the best.

    Al dente noodles slightly chewy and retains their shape no matter what sauce or cooking method you use with it.


    No Boil Baked Rigatoni

    Here is my KILLER baked rigatoni for those home cooks who don’t want to be bothered with boiling the dry pasta first:

    1 lb. Ground Beef
    1 lb. Sweet Italian Sausage
    1 or 2 Green Peppers
    1 or 2 Yellow or White Onions
    1 tbs (or more to taste) Minced Garlic
    1 26oz jar Newman’s Own Sockarooni Sauce
    1 28oz can Diced Tomatoes
    2 tbs Extra Virgin Olive Oil
    ½ tsp (or more to taste) Ground Cayenne Pepper
    1 16oz pkg Dry Rigatoni (I prefer Barilla)
    4-8oz (depending upon personal preference) Grated Parmesan or Romano Cheese (or mixture of both)
    32oz Shredded Mozzarella Cheese

    1. Remove the meat from the refrigerator at least 30 minutes prior to cooking, split the sausage casings length-wise and remove the sausage from the casings.

    2. Heat a pan, and when heated, add all of the olive oil, and garlic, sautéing the garlic briefly, until it is fragrant but not burned.

    3. Add the ground beef and sausage to the pan, using a heavy spatula break up the beef and sausage and cook the meat until it becomes brown and crumbly.

    4. Remove the pan of meat from the stove and drain off excess fat.

    5. Chop the peppers and onions in to large (fork sized) dice. Depending upon the overall size of the peppers and onions, (and personal preference) use one or two of each.

    6. Mix the browned meat, the peppers, onions, tomatoes and pasta sauce together with the Cayenne pepper.

    7. In a rectangular baking vessel (approximately 9x13 inches) layer half of the dry pasta, then spoon on half of the meat/sauce mixture, then spoon on the grated Parmesan or Romano cheese (to personal taste) then layer liberal amounts of shredded Mozzarella cheese.

    8. Repeat with another layer of dry pasta, the meat/sauce mixture, and the grated Parmesan or Roman cheese (do not add a final layer of Mozzarella cheese).

    9. Cover and seal the baking vessel with three, offset, overlapping layers of foil, being careful to crimp the foil very tightly around the edges

    10. Place in to an oven pre-heated to 375 degrees and bake for 90 minutes. After 90 minutes remove the foil and distribute liberal amounts of shredded Mozzarella over the entire dish. Return to the oven for approximately 5 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and beginning to brown.

    The baking dish that I use is a Corningware vessel approximately 10x12 inches, with side walls that are approximately 1-1/2 to 2 inches high. There is a “lip” on the top of the sidewalls, which makes it easy to fold over and seal the foil. It is OK to mound the pasta and sauce in the vessel higher than the sidewalls, as long as the mound peaks in the middle of the vessel, and tapers down at the edges. I have also prepared this dish in standard Pyrex 9x13 inch vessels, but their sidewalls are not as high. You do not add any additional liquid to this recipe. The liquid in the pasta sauce, canned tomatoes and the fresh vegetables is enough to cook through the pasta. The key is to insure that each layer of dry pasta is fully covered with some of the meat/sauce mix.

    If you are nervous about the possibility that all of the dry pasta might not be exposed to enough liquid, you can alternatively, mix in the dry pasta with the wet ingredients and the cheeses first (except for the final, top layer of Mozzarella cheese), and then after everything is completely mixed, spoon it in to the baking vessel. (I don’t care for this method I think the dish “presents” better, with the layering technique.)

    During the last few minutes of baking you can toss a Caesar salad and open a bottle of your favorite wine.

    For the most part my family are Chile pepper wimps, but they never seem to detect the Cayenne in the recipe – for myself, I always very liberally shake Tabasco all over my portion. This is a great meal on a cold winter evening.

    Cajun Rigatoni Bake

    If you’re looking for a super easy week night meal that will have everyone coming back for seconds, look no further than this Cajun Rigatoni Bake.

    Loaded with hearty rigatoni pasta and sliced smoked sausage in a spicy Cajun cream sauce, this meal is sure to disappear quickly. At least, that’s what happened at my house.

    My kids all love Alfredo sauce, and have since they were little, and they all love spicy food too, so I know I can’t go wrong when I serve this dish. It’s true comfort food!

    Of course, if spicy food isn’t your thing, you can always use less Cajun seasoning, or opt for some less spicy seasonings. On the other hand, if you like things really spicy, try using Andouille sausage in place of the regular smoked sausage in this recipe.

    You can also add vegetables (mushrooms and spinach are a great additions) to make pasta dish into a complete, one-pot meal.

    This also makes a great freezer meal to take into friends who could use a little extra love. Both kids and adults love this comforting casserole, so it’s perfect for sharing with neighbors.

    You can use Half and Half or milk in place of the cream if you want to lighten this up a bit. Your sauce won’t be quite as thick, but it will still be delicious.

    You can also use chicken or shrimp in place of the sausage, or use a combination of meat. Shrimp and sausage is another favorite at my house!

    Any time I come across an easy meal that the whole family devours, it’s a winner in my book. Which is why this Cajun Rigatoni Bake appears on the menu often at my house.

    With some crusty bread and a side salad, it’s pretty much the perfect meal!

    Be sure to save this Cajun Rigatoni Bake recipe to your favorite Pinterest board for later.

    Tips for Cooking Pasta

    Use a big pot: Cook pasta in a large pot–big enough to hold 6 quarts of water per pound of pasta.

    Salt: Generously season your cooking water with salt. A few teaspoons per quart of water is a good place to start. Although a little more or less is fine, depending on your preference.

    Don’t overcook: Boil your pasta to until it is al dente, which means it’s cooked, but still a bit chewy. You’ll want to test your pasta for flavor and texture every 20 seconds or so during the last few minutes of cooking.

    If you’ll continue cooking the pasta in a sauce, or baking it in the oven, remove the pot from the heat a few minutes before it’s done to prevent overcooking.
