A lightly baked, flavorful penne pasta made with Simply Balanced Arrabbiata Pasta Sauce, parmesan and mozzarella cheese.
Serves: 4 large servings but easily can be 5 or 6 servings
Ingredients
  • 8 oz pasta, you your favorite noodle, such as shell, penne or elbow noodles (I used High Fiber Penne Pasta)
  • 2½ cups Simply Balanced Organic Arrabbiata Pasta Sauce, 24 oz. jar
  • 2 tbsp. parmesan cheese
  • 2 oz mozzarella cheese, balls, cut in half
Instructions
  1. Lightly spray a 13-by-9-inch baking dish with cooking spray; set aside.
  2. Cook pasta according to manufactures directions, but cook until the pasta is Al Dente, meaning it's still a little chewy (most pasta about 7 minutes). Drain the pasta and pour into prepared baking dish.
  3. Top the pasta parmesan cheese and mozzarella cheese.
  4. Bake in oven for 20 - 30 minutes. If the top starts to get golden in color, add aluminum foil to lightly coverl. Cook until cheese is melted and sauce is bubbling.
  5. Let the pasta rest a few minutes before serving.
