1box (16 ounces)penne pasta
1jar (24 ounces)good quality marinara sauce
1jar (16 ounces)roasted garlic Alfredo sauce
2 and 1/4cupsfreshly grated Mozzarella Cheese(1, 8 ounce block)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Cook pasta according to package directions, cooking for 1 minute less than the package says. Drain thoroughly and set aside.
In a 9×13 glass or ceramic baking dish, spread 1/2 cup of marinara sauce on bottom. Pour half of the cooked pasta on top. Pour half the alfredo sauce, half the marinara sauce and 1 cup of cheese evenly over pasta. Repeat layers: remaining pasta, remaining alfredo sauce, remaining marinara, and finally remaining cheese.
Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes or until hot & bubbly. Enjoy right out of the oven! Garnish with chopped fresh parsley if desired.
