Zucchini Pasta Bake

IMG_4397

Get a big pot of water boiling and cook according to package directions your favorite 12 oz. box of pasta.  Of course we used gluten free pasta.  Meanwhile, chop up 1 white onion and cook in skillet until soft with about a teaspoon of olive oil.  Add in 1 pound of chopped up mushrooms and about 3 zucchini cut into half moons.

Let those veggies cook together for a few minutes until all veggies are soft and a little brown.  Add in a pinch of salt and pepper.  After you have cooked for about 7 minutes or so, add in one jar of your favorite pasta sauce.

Mix everything together gently.  Add in another pinch of salt and pepper and about 1 teaspoon of dried Italian seasoning.  Put in 1 cup of Ricotta cheese and 1 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese and let melt into the pan.  Drain the cooked pasta and pour into the pan with everything else.

Pour all into a greased 9 x 13 casserole dish.  Sprinkle with shredded mozzarella cheese and bake in a 375 degree oven for about 20-25 minutes.  Serve nice and warm.  Gluten Free and Yummy 🙂
