- Preheat oven to 180C.
- In a large frying pan with deep sides, heat the olive oil over a medium heat. Add the bacon and cook until golden brown. Reduced the heat to low, add the onion, and cook for another 8 minutes or until the onion softens. Add the dried chilli and garlic and continue to cook for 2-3 minutes.
- Pour in the wine and reduce until all the liquid has nearly evaporated. Add the tomatoes, season with salt and pepper, and simmer for 20 minutes until the sauce thickens.
- Meanwhile, cook the penne according to packet instructions. Drain into a colander and set aside until the sauce is ready.
- Once the sauce has thickened, add the penne and stir well to evenly coat the pasta. Transfer to a large baking dish and sprinkle over the Mozzarella and Parmesan Cheese. Place into the preheated oven and cook for 15-20 minutes or until the cheese melts and turns golden.
Add the juice and zest of a lemon to the vegetable mix for a little extra zing.
