Author's Notes

To make this low FODMAP, omit the shallot and garlic, and use a sharp aged cheddar which will have less lactose.

Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a large cast-iron skillet, casserole pan, or a 9x13-inch baking dish, and set it aside.
Step 2
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the Penne Pasta (3 cups) and cook, following the package directions, until 2 minutes shy of al dente. The pasta should still have a bite to it. Drain, and shake out all the water.
