A note about serious food allergies

Al forno, being Italian, sounds like something exotic and romantic. It translates to something quite plain: baked. But don't let the lack of “eccitazione” in the words fool you: this meal has thrills that will surprise you. Crisp, salty prosciutto mixes with zucchini, shallot, marinara, and rigatoni. This delicious mixture is then topped with rich, creamy mozzarella and… al forno. You'll also “al forno” garlic bread, serving as the perfect side to a meal full of rich deliciousness in every bite. No fancy Italian needed for that!

Recipe Steps

You Will Need

Before You Cook

  • Step 1 - Cook Pasta and Crisp Prosciutto

    Cook Pasta and Crisp Prosciutto

    Once water is boiling, add pasta and cook until al dente, 11-13 minutes. Reserve ¼ cup pasta cooking water. Drain pasta in a colander. Set aside. Reserve pot; no need to wipe clean. While pasta cooks, place prosciutto on prepared baking sheet in a single layer. Roast in hot oven until crisp, 8-10 minutes. Transfer prosciutto to a plate. When cool enough to touch, break into small pieces. Replace foil on baking sheet. While prosciutto crisps, prepare ingredients.

  • Step 2 - Prepare the Ingredients

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Trim zucchini ends, halve lengthwise, and cut into ½” half-moons. Peel and mince shallot. Mince garlic.

  • Step 3 - Make the Sauce

    Make the Sauce

    Return pot used to cook pasta to medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add zucchini to hot pot and cook until slightly tender, 3-4 minutes. Add shallot and stir occasionally, 3 minutes. Add ¼ cup reserved pasta water, marinara, and prosciutto (reserve a pinch for garnish). Bring to a simmer and stir occasionally until slightly thickened, 4-5 minutes. Stir in pasta.

  • Step 4 - Bake the Pasta

    Bake the Pasta

    Transfer pasta and sauce to prepared casserole dish and top with mozzarella. Bake until cheese is melted and bubbly, 12-14 minutes. While pasta bakes, make garlic bread.

  • Step 5 - Make the Garlic Bread

    Make the Garlic Bread

    Halve French roll, if necessary. Combine 1 Tbsp. olive oil and garlic in a mixing bowl. Place roll on prepared baking sheet, cut side up and spread on garlic-olive oil mixture. Bake until golden brown, 6-9 minutes. Serve family-style, garnishing pasta with reserved prosciutto. Bon appétit!
