Two Timin’ Pasta Bake

I like to cook, dont get me wrong. But so many recipes out there have SO MUCH prep time! This recipe is one of my favorites because its easy, fairly quick and delicious!! Perfect for the mama who is limited on time…isn’t that all of us??!;)



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 (I subbed this with Italian blend)


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 9×13 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. 


**I added chicken to the recipe- just threw it in when I added the penne- and it turned out great!! This dish has great flavor and is so much different, not to mention tastier, than the traditional “Monday night spaghetti”. Add some crispy french bread or garlic toast and you’re set! Hope you enjoy it as much as my husband and I do!:)
