Beth Lowery learned to cook growing up in Southern Washington County. She used her middle name - Olga - for the pasta casserole that has become a specialty of her Town Center Pizza and will be served at Taste of the Town.
Lowery will make and raffle another specialty for the Hospice benefit. Her Italian Cream Cake has a rich dough, coconut and pecans.
Lowery recommends about two quarts of sauce per pound of pasta.
- homemade meat sauce
- light curly egg noodles
- pepperoni, thinly sliced
- mozzarella cheese, diced
Bring water to a boil with olive oil and salt.
Drop noodles in boiling water.
Cook approximately two minutes.
Drain and rinse noodles. Add meat sauce. Bake in casserole about 15 minutes in 300-degree oven.
