Baked Ziti Blanco
A few weeks ago I had the desire to make a creamy pasta dish (so surprise there- I always want creamy pasta!), reminiscent of baked ziti, but I didn't want to go the traditional route. John is a ricotta cheese hater and I was really in the mood for something with a white sauce, so voila, enter this baked ziti blanco. This was very easy to throw together and had a great flavor. John and I both enjoyed it! I used my favorite jarred alfredo sauce but you could certainly substitute your own homemade version!

Parsley (dried or fresh)
1- Prepare the pasta according to packaging directions.
2- Once cooked, toss pasta with sauce, parmesan, mozzarella cheese, and tomato. Transfer to an oven safe baking dish. Top with a sprinkling of additional mozzarella cheese if desired.
