Baked Pasta

Not an entirely complex recipe. Something almost everyone has probably tried at some point in their cooking experience. Cheap, easy, and feeds a ton. Great leftovers.

How to Make Baked Pasta


  • 1Preheat oven to 350.
  • 2Cook pasta of choice (I tend to use rotini) and drain thoroughly once finished.
  • 3Spray pan and add pasta and sauce (homemade or jar sauce of your choice ... either works) to pan.
  • 4Mix 1 entire bag of shredded mozzarella into the pasta and sauce.
  • 5Cover the mix with the second bag of mozzarella cheese (which will ultimately become a top cheese layer to the bake).
  • 6Bake for 40 minutes. Cover with tin foil for the first 20 minutes and uncover for the remaining 20.
