Baked Penne

I love pasta! I can’t have a lot of pasta, but I love it! I also love being able to throw foods together in a matter of minutes and using very few pans. Fewer pans means fewer dishes to wash.

One of my favorite pasta dishes is baked penne. I cook the penne according to the directions on the box and I heat up a jar of spaghetti sauce. When those are done I mix them together in a 9×13″ glass baking dish.


Then I put shredded cheddar cheese on top.


I add Bacon Bits and Oregano on top of the cheese. Sometimes I sprinkle a little bit of cinnamon on top to give it a little extra flavor.


It bakes in a 350 degree preheated oven for about 20 minutes or so, just until the cheese is bubbly.


My daughter does not like spaghetti sauce so I give her the noodles plain with Bacon Bits on the side. She loves green pepper strips!


What are you having for dinner tonight?

  1. That looks good! I can’t eat wheat or dairy anymore, so we use Tinkyada brand brown rice noodles. My wife and kids can still have dairy, so they could top it with cheese. I eat brown rice noodles every day for lunch. I wish I could eat cheese again! God bless!

  2. I wasn’t expecting to see bacon bits in baked penne but that’s a unique take on it. I can’t quite visualize the taste in my head but clearly it’s well liked. Oh, and for the record, I’m jealous that your daughter likes green peppers. If I put those on my son’s plate, he’d run away screaming.
