Ingredients

    1 pound whole wheat penne

    1 cup of your favorite pasta/tomato sauce

    1/3 cup almond breeze unsweetened milk

    1/3 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese + more for garnish

    4 ounces fresh mozzarella, shredded

    1 pint of grape tomatoes (I cut some in half and left some whole)

    1 bunch of fresh basil leaves

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Boil water and cook pasta according to directions.

While pasta is cooking, heat tomato sauce over low heat in a large saucepan.

Once warm, stir in milk and grated parmesan.

Once pasta is done cooking, drain and dump into the sauce, mixing to coat and turning off heat.

Fold in mozzarella and tomatoes, then chop 3-4 fresh basil leaves and add them in too.

Once combined, spray a baking dish with non-stick spray and pour the entire pasta mixture into the dish.

Top with remaining parmesan.

Bake for 25 minutes, or until cheese is golden and bubbly.
