Margherita Pasta Bake Recipe!

My kids love pasta AND pizza. I thought it would be fun to come up with a recipe that was a little combination of both. After experimenting with a few different variations we found one that is a winner. I made it the other night when we were all together and they loved it. And my favorite part is that it’s fast and easy to make AND I had all of the ingredients in the fridge and pantry. YAY! Margherita Pasta Bake!

My son is vegetrarian so I am always looking for something that the whole family will love that my son will love too. You can also add meat to this recipe. I think meatballs or ground beef would be yummy. Also you could add grilled chicken strips too.

  1. This looks delicious! However, the picture looks like it has spinach in it. If so, how much and fresh or frozen spinach. Thanks!
