Tomato Cream Sauce Pasta Bake

I found a similar recipe on a blog and had to make my own version. There are so many ways this could be changed, as long as the base stays the same. You must try the pasta with this delicious sauce! We loved it and I can't wait to make it again soon. -Sarah

creamy Alfredo sauce:
1/2 cup butter
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
2 t. garlic powder
2 cups half and half
6 oz shredded Parmesan (or grated works too)

Melt butter in saucepan, whisk in cream cheese and garlic powder until smooth. Slowly add remaining ingredients and cook over low heat until combined and heated through.

1 recipe creamy Alfredo sauce
1 24 oz. jar spaghetti sauce
2 cups shredded mozzarella
3 cups cooked, cubed chicken
16 oz. penne pasta, cooked
1 cup Parmesan cheese

  • After making the Alfredo sauce add the spaghetti sauce and stir well to combine.
  • Stir in mozzarella, chicken and pasta. Pour into a greased 9x13 pan and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. 
  • Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees about 30 minutes until heated through.
