Cooking Thursday

Here's a recipe for a pasta dish that is about as easy to throw together as spaghetti, but is much less messy to eat and I think it tastes better! 
Excuse the picture, it doesn't do it justice.  :)

Two Timin' Pasta Bake
1 box penne pasta
15 ounce jar alfredo sauce
24 ounce jar marinara sauce
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Cook pasta according to directions on box and drain.
Stir together 2 jars of sauce.  Add mozzarella and stir to combine, then stir in the pasta and toss to coat.
Pour into 9x13 baking pan and place in 350 degree oven for 25 minutes or until bubbly.   Sprinkle Parmesan over all and return to oven for another 5 minutes.
That's all there is to it - enjoy!

That looks and sounds really good especially when it is so cold outside.


ANYthing pasta has to be good!!! Well, heck, 'bout now....any food looks good. I'd best go make me some drab oatmeal now to satiate my craving for some creamy pasta dish.

I will have to try this one Mari...looks delish. I never thought of mixing two sauces together.

Mildred said...

Using both sauces is a unique idea and one that I would love. Thanks so much. Have a nice day.

I've not ever had marina sauce! Definitely going to put this recipe into my computer and try it some time when the kids are coming over. Thanks, Mari, you always have the best recipes. :)

Hi Mari! This looks like comfort food at its best. Pasta and cheese. Yummm! I bet it makes the house smell amazing too.
I might add a little plate of garlic bread to serve with this too :)
