  2. Add your Italian seasoning, diced tomatoes, spaghetti sauce, paste, salt & pepper, and garlic powder you may need to add 1/2 c or so of water if your sauce is too thick. Blend and cook at medium heat for about 25 minutes or until heated through.
  3. In another large pot boil your penne pasta noodles according to box directions. Pour cooked penne in a 13x9, then add and stir your sauce gently then add the whole bag of cheese (sprinkle with your hand evenly on top) Bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until baked and cheese is lightly golden.
