Rotini Bake

"This casserole combines two pasta sauces, marinara and Alfredo.  The combination is wonderful and this is now my favorite pasta dish."
1 pound hamburger
1/2 of an onion, chopped
salt, pepper, onion and garlic powders, desired amounts
1 (24 ounce) jar marinara pasta sauce, or your favorite jarred tomato pasta sauce
1/2 of a 1-pound box or 8 ounces of rotini pasta
1 (15 ounce) jar Alfredo sauce
2 cups shredded cheese of your choice (I used shredded Colby jack cheese.)  
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
In a large saucepan, brown hamburger, onion and seasonings.  Drain.  Add jar of tomato pasta sauce and heat through.  Prepare rotini according to package directions and drain.  In a casserole dish that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray, layer 1/2 of the meat sauce, 1/2 of the pasta, 1/2 of the Alfredo sauce, 1 cup of shredded cheese and 1/4 cup of Parmesan cheese.  Repeat layers.  Bake at 375 degrees for 20-30 minutes or until bubbly.


  1. This sounds great! I would probably pile on some extra cheese personally :)

  2. Is there a calorie count for this? I've made it and it's DELICIOUS!!

    1. Sorry Candie, I’m not sure about the calorie count. I’m so glad that you liked it though!


I really appreciate your comments! Thanks!
