Baked Penne with Beef.

The other day we were at the Cream Cheese Festival. While there I bought a cookbook with Philadelphia Cream Cheese recipes.  We weren't able to find any of the cooking creme called for in the recipe so I made a substitute. I also adjusted the amounts of each ingredient. My family loved this! 

Baked Penne with Beef


1 lb                Penne, cooked
2 lbs              Ground Beef
1/2 cup         Onions, chopped
1/2 cup         Green Bell Pepper, chopped
24 oz             Spaghetti Sauce
1 cup             Mozzarella, shredded
2 cups           Cooking Creme
For Cooking Creme:

8 oz               Cream Cheese
1/2 cup         Beef Broth
1 Tbls            Italian Seasoning
3 Tbls           Parmesan, grated

  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Cook Penne, al dente.
  • Brown meat with onions and peppers.
  • Stir in spaghetti sauce, 3/4 cup cooking creme and 1/2 cup mozzarella.
  • Cook and stir 2 to 3 minutes or mozzarella is melted.
  • Add pasta, mix lightly.
  • Spoon into casserole dish, top with remaining cooking creme and mozzarella, and cover. 
  • Bake 15 minutes, uncover, and continue cooking 5 more minutes. 

Tip:  Italian Sausage can be used in place of Ground Beef.
