Italian Casserole

thumbnailBase
8 oz Skinner Trio Italiano noodles, cooked and drained
2 cups Hunts Roasted Garlic and Onion Pasta Sauce
1 cup Ragu Alfredo Creamy Basil
1/4 cup ricotta
1/4 cup Kraft Italian 5 Cheese Shreds

Topping
1 cup Kraft Mozzarella shreds
1 tsp minced garlic
1/4 cup Kraft Italian 5 Cheese Shreds
1/3 cup  Japanese style Panko bread crumbs

Mix all base ingredients well.
Can also add 1/2 lb browned Sweet Italian Sausage
Pour into casserole dish (I used 2 separate dishes since I wanted one veggie, one meat) Blend topping ingredients, reserving Panko.                                                                         Layer topping over base.
Panko bread crumbs are the final top layer.

Bake at 375 for 30 minutes.

Copycat Recipe for Olive Garden Ziti Al Forno- several versions online, I changed a few ingredients to suit our taste. I think I will add canned mushrooms and chopped black olives next time.
