Baked Pasta

Arielle Davidson


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


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