Tastes-Like-Spaghettio's Pasta Bake


I have concocted this from some vegetarian site. As always, I messed around with it and made it my own. I had no idea it WOULD taste like Spaghettio's, but my kids FLIPPED at the results. I just wanted another healthy Italian dish.

Tastes-Like-Spaghettio's Pasta Bake

(remember, I make this to feed all seven of us)

2 lbs pasta cooked and drained (I like rigatoni or penne)
5 cups tomato sauce
1 15-oz ricotta cheese
2 eggs (I used Ener-G Egg Replacer)
2 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
Parmesan cheese

Mix first six ingredients in a large casserole dish. Sprinkle the top with Parmesan cheese. Put in a 350 degree oven for 20 minutes.

Remember, don't be boring. You can change this around. Saute a chopped onion and some garlic, then throw that in. How about more spices? Fresh chopped basil or oregano ... yum! The strict carnivores can throw in some sort of meat. The options are LIMITLESS!

OH, and FYI, when you figure Weight Watcher's points the way we do at our house, this is only 2 points per cup! BOO-YA!

This is awesome! I may have to make it for me as much as I often have Spaghettio yearnings!

I LOVE for you to link this to our Tempt My Tummy Tuesday. I think everyone would love it!
