8 oz. cooked pasta, any shape
1 cup red sauce*
1 cup white sauce*
100 to 150 g. cheese, grated
In a large bowl, mix the pasta, red and white sauces together. (You could use just red sauce if you wanted). Put into a buttered or oiled 8×8-inch casserole dish and sprinkle grated cheese on top. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes. Alternatively, mix up ahead of time, refrigerate and bake for 40 minutes.
Variations: Add any of the following: a 1/2 tsp. dried oregano, 1/2 tsp. dried basil, some sliced mushrooms, frozen or leftover veggies into the pasta. Dot the top with olives, a sprinkle of parmasean, if you like, and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. Just use the ingredients that you and your family like and forget the rest. You are in charge!
