It’s one of the recipes that I make almost every week. It’s always a hit with the family and we go to bed with full stomach. My son doesn’t mind eating it the next day for lunch if I let him 🙂

You can use any kind of pasta for this recipe. I typically use Penne pastaBelow is the recipe for baked pasta:


  • Penne pasta – 2 cups
  • Basil leaves – 1/2 cup (or Basil seasoning)
  • Shredded mozzarella cheese, feta cheese, and/or monterey jack cheese – 1 cup
  • Pasta Sauce -1 cup
  • Salt – to taste
  • Black pepper – 1 tablespoon


  1. Set the oven temperature at 400 degrees
  2. Boil the pasta with salt
  3. Once they become soft, drain the water (I cook the pasta soft so that it’s easy to eat for my toddler)
  4. Combine the rest of the ingredients and bake for 30 minutes

If you have any leftover, freeze it in an air tight container for later use. You can check out the post on what to freeze here
