This version of the French macaronade, a traditional accompaniment to Beef Daube, uses penne pasta instead of macaroni. The ridged pasta is meant to soak up the daube's brown gravy.

How to Make It

Step 1

Cook pasta in salted water according to package directions; drain, reserving 1/3 cup pasta water. Toss cooked pasta with reserved pasta water; cool slightly. Stir in cheese. Spoon pasta mixture into a greased oval gratin dish or other shallow small baking dish.

Step 2

Combine breadcrumbs and melted butter; toss gently. Sprinkle over pasta. Broil 5 1/2" from heat 1 minute or until lightly browned. Serve hot.
