Baked Penne

Who doesn’t love Italian food?  This is a nice, simple recipe.  You can cook the penne pasta the night before and put it in the refrigerator.  It should be cold when adding it to the mixture.

1 pound cooked penne pasta, chilled

1- 24 ounce jar of your favorite pasta sauce

1 Tbsp. basil

1 Tbsp. Italian seasoning

1 Tbsp. minced garlic

4 cups mozzarella cheese

1 cup diced ham

6 eggs, lightly beaten

1/4 cup Parmesan cheese

1/4 cup unseasoned bread crumbs (just enough to coat the pan)

2 Tbsp. butter or nonstick spray



Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Prepare pan by spreading butter into 9 x 13 baking dish (or using nonstick spray).  Add bread crumbs and coat the pan.  Dump any loose bread crumbs.  In a large bowl, combine sauce, garlic, Italian seasonings, basil, ham, 2 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese, eggs, and pasta.  Spoon into 9 x 13 prepared dish. Top with the remaining mozzarella cheese.  Bake for 30 minutes.  Add Parmesan cheese and bake an additional 15-20 minutes.
