Notes

Tips
  • Please make sure you will boil the pasta until it’s become soft. If you will not boil the pasta properly before baking because it’s in the oven for only a short time and won’t turn mushy.
  • Use any dried pasta other than capellini.
  • If you are baking the pasta right away, go ahead and add the hot ingredients to the hot pasta and stir to coat. If you’re baking it later, wait until all the components have cooled to toss them together.
  • The baking dish used for baked pasta should be thick and made of ovenproof material, such as glass or ceramic. The dish should have fairly high sides to prevent the bubbling sauce and melting cheese from spilling over in the oven as the dish bakes.
  • Several times the bottom and sides of the baking dish are buttered before ingredients are added. Buttering the bottom and sides helps prevent the ingredients from sticking to the dish when it is baked.
  • The sauce can be tomato or cream-based but must include enough liquid to provide sufficient moisture to keep the pasta dish from drying out.
  • When you are pre-cooking the pasta, it must be removed from the heat while it is still a slight undercooked, otherwise, the additional liquid absorption during the baking process will cause the pasta to become overdone and mushy.
The precooked pasta should also be well-drained so excess moisture is not added to the rest of the dish, causing it to become too watery.
