Penne Pasta Bake

I love the Macey's ad that comes out on Tuesdays. A--Because it usually has some pretty good deals in it. B--Because occasionally they throw in a recipe. They are usually pretty kid friendly and easy to make, that's my kind of recipe!

I saw this little beauty a couple of weeks ago and thought it was definitely something I could make quickly and that Little Miss Brynlie would probably devour. I was right on both accounts! Let us know if you try this out and what you and your family thought of it!

(I borrowed the image from here because my sisters thought mine didn't look too appetizing.)

1 lb. ground beef
1 medium yellow onion (optional--at least it was for me! :D)
1 garlic bulb
16 oz. pkg. of Penne Pasta
2 26 oz. jars of marinara sauce
6 oz. Provolone Cheese
8 oz. shredded Mozzarella Cheese
16 oz. sour cream
5 oz. Shredded Parmesan Cheese

**Cook Penne pasta until al dente; drain.
In a large skillet brown onion, garlic, and ground beef. Add spaghetti sauce and warm through.
Lightly Pam a 9x13 baking dish and layer as follows: 1/2 the pasta, 16 oz. sour cream, 6 slices of provolone cheese, 1/2 sauce mixture, remaining pasta, 6 oz. shredded mozzarella cheese, remaining sauce mixture and top with parmesan cheese.
Bake uncovered at 350 for 45 minutes or until cheese is melted.

A bulb of garlic is the entire "head" that you buy at the store, I think that you meant a clove of garlic ;)

I made this a couple weeks ago and it was DELICIOUS. My family loved, there was not any left by the time we ate it a couple days. Definitely keeping this recipe in my arsenal, might even use it to replace my lasagna recipe. Thanks so much!!!

I love this! It's good w/out meat too.
