Pinterest in Real Life: Two Timin' Pasta Bake

 "I can't go to Taco Bell, I'm on an all-carb diet. GOD, Karen, you're so stupid!"

I pinned this amazing looking pasta recipe just about two weeks ago and immediately added the ingredients to my grocery list.

It's really quite easy. I adapted it a tiny bit by adding in some bite-sized pieces of chicken that I cooked in the skillet until they were just done. I just dumped them in with the pasta before popping it in the oven. I also forgot to get shredded Parmesan, so I just sprinkled a bunch of grated Parm over the top. Next time I'll remember to get the shredded stuff.

In short, this shit is really, REALLY good. And it's easy. It fed Husband, Bear, and me dinner, plus two lunches each for Husband and me in the next two days. It reheats well. I'll definitely make this again, so I'm going to have to start looking for Alfredo and marinara on sale to stock up.

  1. If you simmer this pasta sauce combo on the stove and at a bit of garlic and roasted red pepper flakes, you've got Brio's Pasta Fra Diavolo. Add in some chicken or shrimp too. Yums!!!
