Three Cheese Baked Pasta

3cheeseI wanted a baked pasta recipe for community dinner. delivered!

1 lb uncooked pasta
1 lb ground beef
1 onion, chopped
6.5 C tomato pasta sauce
6 oz provolone cheese, thinly sliced
1.5 C sour cream
6 oz mozzarella cheese, shredded
1/2 C grated parmesan cheese

1. Boil pasta according to box directions (cook al dente).
2. Brown ground beef and onion in a skillet. Drain if you need to. Stir in pasta sauce, reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes.
3. Preheat oven to 350. Lightly grease 9×13 inch baking dish. Layer the ingredients as follows: half of cooked pasta, all of provolone cheese, all of sour cream, half of sauce mixture, remaining pasta, mozzarella cheese, and remaining sauce mixture. Top with grated parmesan cheese.
4. Bake for 30 minutes, or until bubbly.

**I used penne noodles, omitted the onion (used a bit of dried onion instead), used almost two jars of Ragu for the sauce, and followed the rest of the directions as listed above. I used my new cranberry stoneware from Pampered Chef–and although it’s a 9×13, it’s also very deep. I can’t imagine using my other 9×13 pans as this recipe makes a lot of pasta! It’s a very good and filling recipe for a freezing cold Nebraska evening.
