Mafalda and Vegetables with Asiago-Fontina Cheese Sauce
ounces dried mafalda, campanelle, or cavatappi pasta
cups broccoli and/or cauliflower florets
cup coarsely chopped carrot
14 1/2 ounce can fire-roasted crushed tomatoes, undrained
cups sliced stemmed shiitake mushrooms and/or sliced button or cremini mushrooms
cup chopped onion (1 large)
cloves garlic, minced
tablespoons olive oil
cups whipping cream
1 1/2
1 1/2
cups shredded Fontina cheese (6 ounces)
teaspoon salt
teaspoon ground black pepper
teaspoon crushed red pepper
tablespoons snipped fresh Italian (flat-leaf) parsley (optional)
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. If desired, break mafalda into bite-size pieces. In a large saucepan cook pasta according to package directions, adding the broccoli and carrot during the last minute of cooking time; drain well. Place in an ungreased 3-quart rectangular baking dish; stir in tomatoes. Set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan cook mushrooms, onion, and garlic in hot oil over medium heat until liquid from mushrooms is almost all evaporated. Carefully add cream; bring to boiling. Boil gently, uncovered, for 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in Asiago cheese, 1 cup of the Fontina cheese, the salt, black pepper, and crushed red pepper.
  3. Pour cheese mixture over pasta in baking dish; stir to coat. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 cup Fontina cheese. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until sauce is bubbly. Let stand for 5 minutes. If desired, sprinkle with parsley.
