  • 1 box (16 ounces) penne pasta
  • 1 jar (24 ounces) good quality marinara sauce
  • 1 jar (16 ounces) roasted garlic Alfredo sauce
  • 2 and 1/4 cups freshly grated Mozzarella Cheese (1, 8 ounce block)
  • Optional: fresh chopped parsley


  • 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.
