1 celery stalk (optional)
1/2 green or red pepper
2 slices ham or salami
28 oz can tomatoes (diced or whole and mashed)
1/4 cup 10% cream
1 tsp oregano
black pepper to taste
1 - 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella or cheddar
While you are cooking the penne, heat some olive oil in a frying pan. Add chopped onion (I had some red onion here too), red pepper and celery if using it. Lightly fry. When just golden toss in chopped ham or salami and turn off the heat.
Mash the whole tomatoes
and mix with cream and oregano.
Add the fried stuff and the cooked pasta. Mix well.
Put the mixture into an oiled 2 quart baking dish, top with cheeses and bake uncovered in a 350F oven for 30 minutes.
Cool 5 minutes.
