Penne Rustica Macaroni Grill Copy Cat recipe, feed a large group and is amazing #Pasta recipe, #Soul FoodPenne Rustica Casserole Recipe

My friend Laurie gave me this copy cat recipe about 12 years ago for Penne Rustica at Macaroni Grill.  I changed it up a bit, for example I do not put shrimp, pimentos, shallots or wine in mine.  But here is the way my family has been eating it the last 12 years.  Matt loves it, I should make it more often… plus it feeds a large group.  We always have left over for the next day or two.

Gratinata Sauce:

  • 2 Tablespoon butter
  • 2 Cloves garlic minced
  • 1 Tablespoon Dijon Mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon chopped rosemary
  •  2 cups white grape juice (can use Marsala wine)
  •  1/4 teaspoon Cayenne pepper (I use black pepper)
  • 6 cups heavy whipping cream ( or you can use whole milk, but sauce will be MUCH thinner)
In a large stock pot, bring water to boil and cook on box of Penne Pasta 14-16 oz , cook to package directions.
In a large sauce pan heat butter, garlic and rosemary for a minute on medium heat.  Then add the rest of the ingredients in, stir on medium heat till it comes to a boil.  Make sure you stir it so the cream does not scald.  Boil for 5 minutes, sauce will thicken.  Take off heat and set aside.

In a large skillet cook 2-3 strips of  bacon, cut into small bits (or you can use Pancetta).  Once it gets crispy take out of the pan, and set aside…. but leave bacon drippings in pan.

In the same pan you cooked the bacon in, add 1/3 cup minced onions, 2 large chicken breast cut into thin strips, season with 1/2 teaspoon paprika, pinch of salt and pepper.  Once the chicken has started to brown and has a nice color, add 6 Tablespoons butter. (At this point if you want to add 18 shrimp peeled and deveined, cook till pink but still translucent… cause you will cook them again in the oven)

Once Chicken in fully cooked add the Gratinata Suace (that you made earlier) and 1 cup Culinary Circle  Parmesan Cheese (found in the specialty cheese bin at Albertsons) .  Bring it all back up to a boil, and cook for 1 minute.

Add you Penne Noodles and sauce with chicken into a LARGE greased baking dish OR  bake it in TWO 9/13 pans… yes it makes a lot.

Then top with 1 cup grated parmesan, crumbled bacon and a dash of salt and pepper.

Bake at 450  for 10-15 minutes.  Take out of oven and let stand for 5-10 before serving.  Serves 6-12 people (depending on serving size)

How to Make a White Castle BurgerWHITE CASTLE BURGER COPYCAT RECIPE, BAKED IN THE OVEN SO EASY, White Castle sliders recipeHi everyone and welcome to our site. We created this post a few years ago it was not planned, we were making White Castle Burgers for dinner and decided to snap a few last minute photos on our phone.  But when I see this recipe photos I have to cringe a little… so I decided to keep the recipe as is, but I wanted to add a few updated photos. Yes I know it is a fast food recipe so who cares if it is pretty or not… but it just makes me feel better having a photo that is actually in focus, lol. Enjoy!

White Castle Burger Copycat recipeSo many grew up on the famous White Castle burgers. They are even know as the first chain restaurant! So how do you make a White Castle Burger or “Slider“? It is quite easy and I will even show you an easy way to cook them up too so you get the nice thin patty of meat! And the best part out side of taste is that they are cooked in the oven! Yes cook your hamburger in the oven in 20 mins! The patties come out so nice and flat and are cooked perfectly on the onions!
