Have you ever eaten at an Italian restaurant and found yourself torn between pasta with alfredo or marinara?! Ummm…me?! Not so much. I’m a marinara girl all the way, but every now and then I like a little alfredo in my life. I love this pasta because it combines the best of both worlds and ohmiword…it.is.GOOD. This little pasta bake required all of no time to prep, but tasted like I spent hours in the kitchen.
TWO TIMIN’ PASTA BAKE
1 box penne pasta
1 (15 oz.) jar Alfredo sauce
1 (24oz.) jar Marinara sauce
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1 cup shredded parmesan cheese
Cook pasta according to directions and drain. Mix the sauces together in a large bowl.
Add the mozzarella and stir to combine. Then toss in the penne and toss to coat.
Pour pasta into 9x13 baking dish and cook on 350 for 20-25 minutes or until bubbly. Remove from oven and sprinkle with shredded parmesan cheese and bake for another 5 minutes.
SO yum!!! We paired ours with a few slices of fresh garlic bread and it was definitely reminiscent of being in a restaurant….with naked kids running through the dining room & chasing each other with legos. Wow. TMI. If you’re looking for an easy weeknight dinner that’s full of flavor, then this is it!!!!
