“Al forno” means “to the oven” so there are many different dishes that can be “al forno”. But, thanks to Olive Garden, the main dish that comes to mind when we think “al forno” is their delicious five cheese ziti al forno recipe.
So, this pasta al forno recipe is a copy cat of Olive Garden’s Five Cheese Ziti Al Forno Recipe.

So use whatever you have on hand…I’ve made this recipe using macaroni, ziti, corkscrews, and even egg noodles.
