Leftover Pasta? Simply bake it in the Wood-fired Oven

April 15, 2016

While working on a photo shoot for grilling Sausage and Bratwurst in the wood-fired oven, we decided to also place some leftover pasta in a cast iron skillet. This morning we also stretched fresh mozzarella from curds, and it was the right decision to top the penne with delicious slices of delicious cheese. Everything was topped with a good drizzle of olive oil and a dusting of hot pepper.  The skillet was pushed into the hot oven for the magic to happen.  Just a short while later a simple and delicious lunch was placed on the table and everyone was satisfied.  Grilled sausage, baked pasta, a few slices of schiacciata, a salad, and the meal was complete.
