Fettuccine Timbale

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/fettuccine_timbale.html

From EatingWell:  November 1997

Baked pasta dishes are tasty, but notoriously high in fat—here we bake fettuccine in a light and cheesy sauce. Baking it in a springform pan lets you unmold it for a stunning presentation.

8 servings | Active Time: 25 minutes | Total Time: 1 1/2 hours

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Coat a 9-inch springform pan with cooking spray. Coat pan with 1/4 cup breadcrumbs, tapping out the excess. Put a pot of water on to boil for cooking pasta.
  2. Heat oil in a large heavy saucepan over medium heat. Add flour and cook, whisking constantly, for 1 to 2 minutes. Add hot milk and bring to a simmer, whisking, until smooth and slightly thickened, 3 to 4 minutes. Add nutmeg and season with salt and pepper. Transfer to a large bowl; let cool for 5 minutes. Add eggs, mozzarella, ricotta, prosciutto (or ham) and 2 tablespoons Parmesan. Mix well.
  3. Meanwhile, cook fettuccine in boiling salted water until just tender, 8 to 10 minutes or according to package directions. Drain and rinse well. Add to the cheese mixture and mix well.
  4. Spoon the pasta mixture into prepared pan. Mix the remaining 1/4 cup breadcrumbs and 2 tablespoons Parmesan in a small bowl. Sprinkle evenly over the timbale.
  5. Bake the timbale until bubbly, 40 to 55 minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes. Run a knife around the inside edge of the pan, remove ring and place timbale on a platter. Cut into wedges and serve.
