Recipe Week Part III: Three-Cheese Pasta Bake

We're on to the THIRD recipe I want to share with everyone.  This one was EASY, even easier than the Spaghetti Carbonara and was awesome.  The best part of this one?  SUPER kid friendly.  Liliana LOVED the stuff, I mean seriously, she ate more than we did! : )

This recipe is truly like macaroni and cheese, chicken alfredo, and lasagna in one.  And that just sounds awesome doesn't it?

NOTE: I made the recipe without any meat, like the recipe says.  HOWEVER it would taste amazing with chicken or shrimp on there as well.

Three-Cheese Pasta Bake

1 16 oz package ziti pasta (penne works too)                       2 large eggs, lightly beaten
20 oz alfredo sauce (from the jar)                                         1/4 c. grated Parmesan cheese
1 (8 oz) container Sour Cream                                              1/4 c. chopped parsley (fresh is best)
1 (15 oz) container Ricotta Cheese                                       1 1/2 c. mozzarella shredded cheese


Prepare pasta according to box.  Drain and leave out. 

Stir together Alfredo sauce and sour cream.  Toss with the pasta until evenly coated.  Spoon half of the mixture into a lightly greased 13 * 9 cooking dish.

Stir together the Ricotta cheese, eggs, parmesan, and parsley.  Spread this evenly over the pasta already in the cooking dish.  Spoon the remaining pasta mixture over this layer.

Sprinkle the entire thing with mozzarella cheese.  Your dish, at this point should look like this:

Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 30 minutes, or until bubbly.

This made for nearly 3 dinners and was such a treat.
