Pasta Bake

made this for dinner tonight. It's just like lasagna but with a different pasta shape. Used brown rice macaroni to make it gluten free. Make sure all pasta is covered with sauce or cheese...since the pasta dries up and hardens very easily.
  • bag of pasta, like elbows
  • ricotta
  • 1-2 eggs
  • parmesan
  • italian seasoning
  • mushrooms, sliced
  • zucchini, sliced
  • mozzarella, grated
  • pasta sauce
  1. Boil the pasta until nearly done. Drain.
  2. In a bowl, mix the eggs, ricotta, parmesan and spices.
  3. In 9x13 dish spread sauce. Top with half the pasta. 
  4. Add the ricotta mixture, vegetables, some mozzarella and more sauce.
  5. Top with remaining pasta and repeat previous step. End with mozzarella topping.
  6. Bake at 350 until cheese is lightly browned (about 45 min - 1 hour).
see lasagna recipe for other things to do. spinach in the ricotta. beef in the sauce. etc.
