Larger jars of sauce are best. Or, if you have your own marinara and alfredo recipes, you can use that too! You can use any brand, flavored marinara, or alfredo sauce that you like (ex: roasted garlic, basil tomatoes, etc.) Start cooking the meat of your choice. I suggest ground Italian sausage or Italian turkey. However, ground beef would be delicious as well! The recipe requires 1 pound of meat, but if you prefer extra pasta sauce, consider doubling the meat to 2 pounds. While the pack of pasta is fully boiling, drain the meat and add the marinara and alfredo sauce over the meat. Add Italian spices and garlic powder. The creamy and meaty sauce smells so good that it’s hard to resist early nibbling! Drain pasta and place in a large saucepan. Pink noodle casserole Pour the meat sauce over the pasta and stir until completely blended, as seen in the video. Next, prepare a baking dish with a non-stick spray and add half of the pasta to the baking dish. Put 6 slices of mozzarella cheese on it. Put the second half of the pasta over the cheese. Add another 6 slices of mozzarella cheese on top. To prevent the cream casserole from drying completely, be sure to cover it with aluminum foil before putting it in the oven. What I love about mozzarella cheese is that it melts so beautifully. Since you are adding two layers of mozzarella cheese to this pink pasta casserole, every bite will contain this amazingly delicious cheese! To add a little imagination to your presentation, sprinkle parsley on top. Serve with a side salad and maybe some garlic bread. Delicious leftovers! Cover the leftovers and keep them in the fridge. Take it to work or, as my kids love, put it in a thermos for a hot school lunch.
