Instructions | PDF 1 • Adjust rack to top position and preheat oven to 400 degrees. Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Wash and dry all produce. • Halve bell pepper lengthwise; remove stem and seeds. Pick basil leaves from stems; roughly chop or tear leaves. Tear mozzarella into bite-size pieces. 2 • Toss bell pepper halves on a baking sheet with a drizzle of olive oil each; season with salt and pepper. Arrange cut sides down. Roast until softened and lightly charred, 20-25 minutes. • Remove from oven and let cool slightly. Transfer to a cutting board, then thinly slice. • Heat broiler to high. 3 • While bell pepper roasts, add 1 TBSP butter to a small microwave-safe bowl; microwave until just melted, 30 seconds. Stir in panko and salt. • 4 SERVINGS: Use 2 TBSP butter. 4 • Once water is boiling, add cavatappi to pot. Cook until al dente, 9-11 minutes. Drain and set aside. 5 • While pasta cooks, heat a large, preferably ovenproof, pan over medium-high heat. Add marinara, ½ cup water, half the basil, a pinch of chili flakes, and a big pinch of salt; stir to combine. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium. Simmer until slightly thickened, 3-5 minutes. • Turn off heat and stir in cream cheese until melted. Season with salt and pepper. 6 • Stir sliced bell pepper and cavatappi into sauce. If needed, add more water a splash at a time until pasta is thoroughly coated in sauce. Season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with mozzarella and panko. • Broil on top rack until cheese has melted and panko is golden brown, 2-4 minutes. • Sprinkle with remaining basil and more chili flakes if desired. Serve. • TIP: If your pan isn’t ovenproof, transfer mixture to a baking dish before sprinkling with mozzarella and panko.
