Today’s recipe is one I got from Sargento, the cheese company. I must say I am a big cheese fan and this layered penne ham, mushrooms, and peas dish that uses 3 kinds of cheese – ricotta, swiss, and Parmesan. YUM! The best way to describe this dish is a cross between a lasagna and a macaroni and cheese. I’m a mushroom lover and this dish was perfect.
I must say that I loved the 3 cheese combination in this dish. Also, I like the addition of the ham and the mushrooms. I left them big enough so those who aren’t mushroom fans at my house could pick around them. I must admit I wasn’t too hot on the peas. Personally, I’d rather have double the mushroom but my family won’t go for that. So next time I would prefer to just omit the peas in this Layered Penne with Ham, Mushrooms, and Peas.
