Make this on the weekend, invite a few friends, and have enough for leftovers.
Really...throwing a meal together couldn't get any easier as you are getting home from campus. Boil pasta, mix sauces and bake in a dish. That's it!
Try this out, another great recipe from 'Baking With Blondie' blog!
5 quart sauce pan
9" x 13" x 2" Pyrex dish
Collander / Strainer
4 cups of small pasta (macaroni, penne, rotini)
1-2 tsp salt for boiling pasta
15 oz jar of 'Alfredo' sauce (I used Paul Newman's)
24 oz jar of Marinara sauce (I like RAO's Marinara)
2 cups of shredded mozzarella cheese
1 cup shredded parmesan cheese
2-3 Tbls basil, chopped (or parsley)
1. Wash your hands.
2. Spray your pyrex dish.
4. Bring SALTED water to a boil in your saucepan and cook the pasta until "almost" done, or better known as 'al dente'. Do not cook completely since this will bake another 25 minutes in sauce.
10. Bake x 25 minutes, then remove foil and broil briefly until cheese golden brown.
