I saw this recipe a couple of years ago on one of my favorite blogs, 71toes. It's a great way to feed a lot of hungry kids. It has become the favorite pasta dish at our house.
|For the RED SAUCE:|
1 lb. mild breakfast sausage (I use Jimmy Dean)
1 onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 bottle of marinara (I use Trader Joe's Tomato Basil)
*Cook sausage with onion and garlic, drain grease, add marinara.
For the WHITE SAUCE:
4 Tbs. butter
1 cup whipping cream
1 8oz. package cream cheese
1 clove garlic, minced
1/3 cup parmesan cheese
*Melt the butter, then add whipping cream, cream cheese, garlic and parmesan. Whisk together on stove for a couple minutes until smooth and thick.
*In a 9x13 pan, layer one box of cooked penne pasta, the white sauce, the red sauce and then cover with shredded mozzarella. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes.
