Let go of the ordinary with the distinctive flavor of our delicious freezer-friendly Penne Pasta Bake! Traditional red sauce is replaced with a creamy combination of brown gravy, spaghetti sauce, and half & half and flavored with garlic, herbs, and cheese.
While pasta is cooking, sauté garlic in oil over low heat for 1-2 minutes in a large fry pan.
Add all remaining ingredients except mozzarella cheese and pasta and simmer for 10 minutes.
Add pasta and mix gently. Pour mixture into a prepared baking dish and sprinkle the top with mozzarella cheese.
Bake at 350°F for 25 minutes.
This pasta dish freezes well so you may want to double the ingredients on your shopping list and make an extra pan for the freezer. Prepare your recipe for the freezer, but do not bake. Wrap with foil or freezer paper and label with "Penne Pasta Bake: Thaw and bake at 350°F for 25 minutes."
