Fist a few side notes regarding the above ingredients,
Feel free to use mostacholi noodles instead of the Penne (I just like the texture of a penne noodle better)
You can also add some parmesan cheese to the top after you have browned the Mozzarella
and Finally you can also add garlic or garlic salt for more taste (my family just hates it UGH)
Ok so, Pre heat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and then follow directions below-
Step 1-Boil your noodles as specified by the package
Step 2- in a large bowl add your sauces and paste
Steps 3- add seasoning, here is the tricky part I don’t really measure it out I just go by taste. But if I had to guess it would be about 2 tablespoons of Basil, 1 table spoon oregano, half a tablespoon of pepper and a teaspoon of salt. Like I said though you just kind of have to taste it as you add the seasonings, to make sure it’s to your liking.
Step 4- Strain noodles then add them to the sauce, take special care to fully mix it all
Steps 5- in a large baking dish add your first layer covering the bottom
Step 6- add a layer of mozzarella cheese, about 1 to 1-1/2 cups
Step 7- add the last of your noodles/ sauce to your dish
Step 8- Top the dish off with the rest of your mozzarella
Step 9- bake for about 25 to 30 minutes depending on your oven (be sure to check at 20 to prevent burning of your cheese and also would be a good time to add your parm if you have chosen to do so.
Step 10- Remove from oven when the cheese has browned
Steps 11- ENJOY!
