Everyone knows pasta is quick. That's one of the reasons Americans (and Italians) love it.
Some pasta dishes take considerable time to prepare. But others don’t have to. We set out to streamline Bolognese and baked four-cheese pasta to make them weeknight dining.
Tired of greasy, heavy pasta casseroles with stringy cheese and mushy noodles? We set out to make a creamy casserole with great flavor, properly cooked pasta, and a crisp bread crumb topping.
Lush, decadent, even a little unctuous, Bolognese sauce is everything you could ask for except quick. Could we find a way to make this classic pasta sauce in less than an hour?
Not all tomato pastes offer the same deep flavor we were after. We found one that delivered a big tomato punch.
