Baked Penne

I had some of the Philadelphia cooking cream in the 'fridge that I got cheap with a coupon that was about to expire so I headed to pinterest to find a recipe to use it in. Of course, it didn't take me long to find this recipe for baked penne. 

1/2 lb. ground beef 
1/2 cup chopped onions 
1 jar(24 oz.) spaghetti sauce
1 tub(10 oz.) Philadelphia Italian Cheese and Herb Cooking Creme
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
3 cups cooked penne pasta

Preheat oven to 350. Brown ground beef and onions. Drain grease. 

Pour in spaghetti sauce, 3/4 cup cooking creme and 1/2 cup mozzarella

Cook for 2-3 minutes until mozzarella cheese is melted. 

Mix in the pasta and stir until mixed well. 

Pour into baking dish and put remaining cooking cream and mozzarella on top. 

Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes

Mike's exact words after eating it was "this is like Olive Garden" I guess he really liked it! It was so good. I usually don't like a lot of pasta sauce but this was perfect because it had the cooking cream mixed in. I will definitely be making this again soon!
