Baked Cheese and Penne---The Meatless Wonder Meal!

We love this meal, there's no meat in this dish, so healthy and it is easy on the pocket book too!

8 ounce ricotta
8 ounce shredded mozzarella cheese (I had Italian blend in my fridge and it worked great!)
4 cups of spaghetti sauce
1/2 cup of diced roasted peppers (buy them whole and dice them yourself to save some money)
1 teaspoon of garlic powder
3 small zucchinis, chopped
1 pound box of Penne Pasta, cook as directed on package

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F
Mix Mozzarella, ricotta, spaghetti sauce, peppers,zucchini and garlic powder in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper.
Toss cooked pasta with sauce mixture and add to 13 x 9 baking dish.
Top with grated Parmesan or mozzarella cheese (optional)
Cover with foil
Bake for 20 minutes covered
Uncover and bake for 15 more minutes.

You can serve this with a vegetable, salad or garlic bread---we opted for corn tonight.
