How to Make It

Step 1

Heat oven to 350°. Coat an 8-inch square baking dish with cooking spray; set aside.

Step 2

Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat; add pasta, and cook 7 minutes or until al dente. Drain and set aside.

Step 3

Reduce heat to medium, and add olive oil to pan. Add flour, salt, and pepper; cook 1–2 minutes until flour begin to brown. Stir in milk, 1/2 cup at a time, whisking well to ensure a smooth sauce. Stir in cheeses; whisk until completely melted. Stir in cooked pasta. Transfer mixture to prepared baking dish.

Step 4

Top pasta mixture with panko; bake at 350° for 20 minutes or until top begins to brown and cheese is bubbly.

Step 5

While pasta mixture bakes, place roasted bell pepper and yogurt in a blender or food processor; process until smooth. Cut baked pasta evenly into 4 pieces, and place on 4 serving dishes; drizzle each serving with roasted red pepper sauce.
