Pasta Al Forno with Sour Cream

June 27, 2022  •  Easy Entrees, One Dish Meals, Pasta & Pizza

There are two foolproof dishes that can use basically whatever protein and vegetables you have on hand: an Asian stir-fry and a pasta casserole. I make a lot of both of these for the simple reason that I hate food waste and want to use up what I have on hand. In this case, I needed some sour cream for something else so had about about a cup of it left that I knew I wasn’t going to use, and decided to mix it into the sauce for this baked pasta dish. Turns out that was brilliant, as the sour cream added a depth of flavor and a subtle tang that was really, really good. The recipe below is just a guideline, so mix it up with what you have on hand.  You can omit the meat and add more veggies if you’d like. Just don’t skip the sour cream!
