Baked  Penne Pasta with Mincemeat Sauce

I am usually cooking from scratch which means I cook for what I have at home. I have baked pasta not only with mincemeat but also with bacon slices, corned beef and tuna flakes. They are all yummy although with different taste. So you need to be creative. If you don´t have mincemeat at home, try other meat and if you don´t have penne, why not try cooking this recipe with spaghetti? Well, it´s up to you. Enjoy!

By the way, this pasta is good not only for my Christmas celebration but for yours, too. You can make this a day before and bake it a few minutes before you start your dinner. 

                           Merry Christmas!!!
