“This could very well be an established recipe, but I personally love this because my dad made it all the time when i was a kid, and he always just called it penne. He never followed a cookbook, so I assume it was off the top of his head!”


Easy 👌


1 package penne
1 bulb bell pepper
1 bulb onion
1 bulb garlic
1¾ cups mozzarella cheese
2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
1 pinch parsley
1 pinch salt


  • spatula
  • Step 1/6

    • 1 package penne

    Bring a pot of water to boil. After the water starts to boil, dump the box of penne into the pot.

  • Step 2/6

    Dice up the bell pepper, the onion and the garlic.

  • Step 3/6

    After you cook your penne to your preference, head over to the sink and strain it.

  • Step 4/6

    • 1¾ cups mozzarella cheese
    • 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
    • spatula

    Put your strained pasta either in a mixing bowl or back into the pot and mix in your olive oil with just a spoon or a spatula. When you think that it’s pretty well mixed in there, add your mozzarella. You want to do all this rather quickly so the noodles wont have time to cool down and you can get the mozzarella to start melting a little bit.

  • Step 5/6

    • 1 bulb bell pepper
    • 1 bulb onion
    • 1 bulb garlic
    • 1 pinch parsley
    • 1 pinch salt

    Add in the diced bell pepper, onion and garlic. After getting all that mixed in there, add in the last two ingredients; add the salt and the parsley. Don’t worry if you don’t have onions, garlic or fresh parsley. Garlic powder, onion powder and dried parsley flakes will do just fine.
