RECIPE

1. PREHEAT oven to 450°F. Lightly oil a 13x9-inch baking dish.

2. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the pasta and quickly bring the water back to a boil. Stir the pasta a few times so it does not stick or clump together and cook according to the manufacturer's directions. When the pasta is done, drain immediately in a colander and run cold water over it to stop the cooking.

3. In a large bowl, toss the pasta with the sauce, 1 cup of the mozzarella cheese, the other cheeses, tomatoes, salt and pepper. Pour the pasta mixture into the prepared baking dish. Press the pasta down gently with a large spoon and sprinkle with the remaining 1 cup of mozzarella cheese.

4. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove the foil and bake 5 minutes more. Remove from the oven and cool for 10 minutes before serving. Garnish with parsley. - See more at: http://www.newmansown.com/recipes/creamy-baked-pasta/#sthash.HuA6FJEV.dpuf
