Baked Penne

Cooked this for my 24th birthday, last March :-) I'm fed up with the spaghetti and macaroni noodles, so I tried penne pasta. 

First, I had mass in Quiapo and went to Quinta Market (walking distance from Quiapo Church). A manila girl but it was my first time to shop in Quinta Market. I bought all the ingredients for my handa on my birthday (pasta, kare-kare, bagoong rice, read my post about these). 

Penne and parsley were the cheapest. Penne noodles cost P150 only for more than 1 and half kilo noodles. Fresh parsley for only 5 pesos. The rest ingredients were same with the price in malls.
