This "pie" is dense with penne pasta, Tuscan kale and creamy Asiago cheese. I have given it a potato crust that is scented with truffle oil. I call it a pie, but it is really a variation on timballo di maccheroni a traditional drum shaped baked pasta dish from the Campania region of Italy near Naples.
