I’m always up for a new pasta dish, especially one that combines the unexpected to create something delicious. Both tomato and alfredo sauce go well with pasta, so why not combine them? This Easy Weekday Dinner really is easy! It only has four main ingredients, because unless you’re like me, why would you mess with simple goodness? You see, as a chef, I must create, it is my destiny, my desire….my calling…..Tomato Alfredo pasta really is delicious by itself. Today’s episode of Delicious Food 101 features Friar Tyst and El Gastronomo. So, enough talk, we must cook!

The Four Ingredients: 1 26 oz. can three cheese tomato sauce, 1 14.5 oz. can home-style alfredo sauce, 16 oz. pasta, 1 cup grated Colby cheese. The Optional Ingredients: 1/2 tsp. parsley flakes, 1 tsp. no salt seasoning, 1/2 tsp. basil.

Bring a large pot of water to a boil, add pasta. Cook for 8-10 minutes. Spoon a few tablespoons of tomato sauce into a large baking dish, spread evenly. Add half of the cooked pasta and half of each of the sauces. Repeat once. If using, sprinkle the spices evenly atop the layers. Top with the grated cheese and bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes.
