Penne pasta with store-brand canned (smooth) tomato sauce and 2% Kraft Mozzarella cheese.

Recipe Ingredients for Penne Pasta with Kraft 2% Mozzarella

11 oz penne
28 oz tomato sauce
8 oz 2% mozzarella cheese

Recipe Directions for Penne Pasta with Kraft 2% Mozzarella

  1. Cook the pasta until al dente (approximately 8-12 minutes). Drain.

  2. While cooking the pasta, heat the tomato sauce on low in a separate pot. You can use any tomato sauce you like, but plain regular store-brand works well. Add spices to your taste. My preference is 1 tbsp garlic powder, 1 tbsp onion powder, 1 tsp salt, 1 tsp ground black pepper, 1 tsp ground oregano and 1 tbsp Italian seasoning. Stir occasionally.

  3. Turn on your broiler to high.

  4. Take a large bakeware dish (corningware is typical). Pour the pasta into the dish. Pour the sauce on top the pasta. Stir with a spoon until all pasta are coated.

  5. Top the dish with 6-7 ounces of the shredded mozzarella, reserving 1-2 ounces for your diners.

  6. Place dish under the broiler for approximately 30-60 seconds, turning to evenly brown the cheese.

  7. Remove the pasta and serve.
