Al forno! I love the sound of those words this time of year. Even though El Nino is making it feel like springtime, I’m sticking to my guns and will keep the oven on. Global warming ain’t gonna make me eat pasta salad. And besides, baked pasta is comfort food anytime of year.
I used conchiglie integrale (whole wheat shells) mainly because that’s what I had in the pantry. And also because sausage and mozzarella could use any healthy twist. Any short pasta is a fine substitute.
Stay warm. Get comfy. Enjoy winter.
