Meatless Monday - Four Cheese Ziti

last month at girls night, we went to olive garden. i got the five cheese ziti al forno. i loved it. like i could have eaten it everyday that week. i even brought some home for the husband and questioned him repeatedly "isnt it good?? i loved it". he didnt seem to have the same reaction as i did.

well last week when i was looking around on pinterest, i found this copy cat recipe. and i probably screamed. it immediately went on this weeks menu plan. i didnt make it just like the recipe, because i couldnt find fontina cheese, and i liked to be different :)

Four Cheese Ziti
inspired by this copy cat recipe

1 lb of pasta (i used penne because i couldnt find rigatoni)
1 - 24 oz jar marinara sauce
1 - 16 oz jar alfredo sauce (i used creamy mozzarella)
2 cups mozzarella cheese
1 cup parmesan cheese
1/2 cup ricotta cheese


1.Start boiling water for pasta and cook while preparing the sauce. Heat oven to 325.

2. In a sauce pan, mix marinara, alfredo, 1 cup mozzarella, 1/2 cup parmesan, and ricotta cheese.

3. Once sauce starts to bubble, mix with cooked pasta.

4. Transfer to 9x13 baking or casserole dish. Top with the rest of the mozzarella and parmesan cheese. Bake for 20 mins.

5. Enjoy!
