Double Trouble Pasta Bake

Yummm, I got this idea and recipe from Pearls, Handcuff and Happy Hour she has amazing recipes, so check her out! 

 Mix the two jars of sauce together....

 Boil pasta, drain and mix with sauces... add in 1 cup of Parmesan cheese and 1 cup of Mozzarella.. Then top with 1 cup of Mozzarella...Bake... We added Red Pepper flakes to spice it up... after the fact, because we served it to the girls without and they LOVED it!
 If you look closely you'll see I served this on a paper plate... classy, I know! I didn't feel like doing dishes.. :)

  1. Hi, I started following your blog awhile ago through the Ludlows blog, and I just wanted to thank you for this recipe - it tastes just like Caffe Capri's Baked Penne, which is my favorite Italian dish! My husband also loved it and how easy it was to help me make. Thanks again, you rock!

  2. Awesome! Thanks for stopping by! I love Cafe Capri! you are right, it does taste like that!
