Start by making a meat sauce… I use 1/2 -80/20 hamburger meat, 1/2 ground pork browned with 1/2 large onion diced, 1 large diced shallot, granulated garlic to taste ,salt and pepper to taste. 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper for a little zip! 1 medium size jar of Prego Sauce ( traditional ). Stir in 2 tablespoons of granulated sugar as a last step to this meat sauce.
Boil your Penne noodles! 1 +1/2 box about 18 oz. of pasta… Drain and incorporate with meat sauce. Fold together…
Spray a large casserole, 13 X9 in. baker with cooking spray. Turn out the meat sauce into the casserole dish.
Fold 16 oz. of ricotta and a tablespoon of parsley flakes together. Drop by tablespoon onto penne/ meat sauce.
Completely cover all of the casserole with shredded mozzarella. A small package will do depending on how much cheese you like!
Bake @ 375 degree preheated oven for 30 min!
Ooh yum! I add a tossed salad and (cheater) packaged baked Texas Toast… This makes a well rounded meal…Enjoy!
