I made this for the first time this week and the flavor was amazing. I found a recipe on Kraft Foods but made modifications because I like cheesy meaty dishes. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did!


  • 1 box of penne noodles
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 green pepper, chopped
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 jar (26 oz) spaghetti sauce
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 tub (10 oz) PHILADELPHIA Italian Cheese and Herb Cooking Creme
  • Garlic salt to taste

Preheat oven to 350°

In a large pot, boil water and cook pasta, drain. In a large skillet, brown meat with green pepper and onion seasoned with garlic salt. Drain meat and return to skillet.

Add spaghetti sauce, cooking creme, and 1 cup mozzarella cheese. Cook for a few minutes stirring until the cheese is all melted. Add mixture to the pasta and mix.

Pour pasta into a 13×9 baking dish. Cover with remaining cup of mozzarella cheese.  Cover with aluminum foil.

Bake for 30 minutes, removing the foil after 15 minutes.
