If my mom wasn't making some kind of pasta laddled with sauce, it was Pasta al Forno, which simply means, Pasta in the Oven. It was my favorite and my dad's too, who may I add worked at a company called Miceli's Dairy. My dad always had access to the freshest cheese and ricotta. Sometimes still warm brought home. He worked there just days after coming here from Italy and retired from the company, this family owned business was like an extended family to us. When my father passed, they took real good care of us and was always there for my dad because he was such a hard committed worker. With that in mind, I would beg every Sunday for my mom to make this dish! Always done in a 11x14 pan, but I made it smaller. I think she always thought she was feeding an Army. I can't duplicate her sauce even though I make my own, but I did find a pretty close Italian sauce called MIDS when I need a sauce quick. It's so good and close to an authentic homemade Italian sauce. I use it when I don't want to make my own sauce. And yes I still beg my mom to make this dish and from time to time we think to go to the factory where my dad worked to get the cheese, if not we buy their cheese at the grocery store. So this dish is my thanks to my Mom, Dad and Miceli's Dairy!
