This Spicy Baked Fettucine is a wonderful weeknight dinner! Fettuccine tossed with garlic, spinach, pepperoncini, and a spiced tomato sauce and topped with grated pecorino romano and sliced mozzarella - you will think you're sitting down to dinner in Italy!
Cook fettuccine according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a deep skillet heat olive oil over medium high heat. Stir in spinach, garlic, and pepperoncini. Saute a few minutes until spinach is wilted and garlic is fragrant.
Stir in Classico® Spicy Tomato & Basil sauce and simmer until fettuccine is al dente. Drain fettuccine and return to pot.
Pour sauce mixture over cooked fettuccine, stirring to coat well. Stir in 1/4 cup pecorino cheese.
Transfer half of fettuccine mixture to a round baking dish. Top with half of the sliced mozzarella. Repeat the layers with the remaining fettuccine and mozzarella. Top with dried basil and crushed red pepper.
Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Allow to cool slightly before serving.
