Mini Cheesy Pesto Noodle Ring / Noodle Ring Day!
This is a mini version of a noodle ring, which is basically just cheesy pasta in a fun ring form. It also resembles a wreath a little bit because I used pesto, haha! But you can eat it all year round. :)
Dec. 11 is Noodle Ring Day!
What I used:
- Barilla Ready Pasta (Fusilli)
- Mozzarella in string cheese
- Deallo Pesto
- Parmesan cheese
- Chili Pepper flakes
- Cooking spray
- Mini Bundt Pan
- Baking sheet w/ foil sheet
Obviously you can use a regular Bundt pan.
I microwaved the pasta. While that was in the microwave, I sprayed the mini Bundt pan with cooking spray and I cut the string cheese into 8 chunks.
I put pasta and cheese chunks in to the Bundt pan mold and microwaved it for 60 seconds to melt the cheese. The cheese helps the pasta stick together in a ring form.
Then I flipped it on to a baking sheet with foil
Then I covered it with pesto, shredded parmesan cheese, chili pepper flakes and bits of pepperoni.
Then I put it in the oven on Broil for 5 min. or so to get golden brown and a nice crust.
