I had to take dinner to a friend a few weeks ago and remembered this recipe. I got this recipe at my bridal shower 11 years ago! I hadn't made it in a while, and I am now so happy to have rediscovered it! It is the perfect meal to take to someone or the perfect meal to have at home if you are wanting lasagna without the fuss!
Saucy Penne & Three Cheese Bake
1/2 pound cooked Penne Pasta
1/2 pound lean ground beef
1 26 ounce jar spicy tomato sauce (I don't always use spicy tomato sauce...it depends on what you are in the mood for.)
1 15 ounce container of Ricotta cheese
8 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese (divided into 2 cups)
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 350. In saucepan over medium heat, brown ground beef and drain off the fat. Add pasta sauce. In medium bowl, combine Ricotta, one cup of mozzarella, parmesan, and egg. In a lightly greased pan, layer cooked penne pasta and meat/sauce mixture.
