Quick and Easy Meal.

Josh found this meal online the other day and we tried it last night because the cubed steak we'd taken out had not thawed completely yet.  Oddly enough we had the exact ingredients it called for, right down to the same brand of sauce.  
It was really good and so easy Teagan could have done half of it by herself, seriously. The only complaint I had was the lack of protein.  Next time we will be adding chicken or sausage and probably some veggies just to add some nutritional goodness.

What you'll need:
1 box penne pasta
1 (15 oz.) jar Alfredo sauce
1 (24oz.) jar Marinara sauce
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1 cup shredded parmesan cheese

What you need to do:
Cook pasta according to directions and drain.
Mix the sauces together in a large bowl.
Add the mozzarella and stir to combine. Then toss in the penne and toss to coat.
Pour pasta into 9x13 baking dish and cook on 350 for 20-25 minutes or until bubbly. Remove from oven and sprinkle with shredded parmesan cheese and bake for another 5 minutes. 

*we also didn't bake it this go 'round but next time we probably will*

What kind of goodness are you going to add to this recipe?
