Tomato and Mozzarella Pasta

This looks really good and I want to try it ASAP. The recipe doesn't have any meat in it, but I'm sure you could add hamburger or chicken and either would still be good. Here is a link to the original blog with the recipe in it. I hope you enjoy it.

Tomato and Mozzarella Pasta
                     2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil 
            2 crushed garlic cloves 
            2 (14 ounce) cans of diced Italian plum tomatoes
            1 teaspoon dried oregano
            Salt and pepper 
            1 pound of pasta (tubes)
            8 ounces of Mozzarella cheese, cubed 
            2/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese

  • Heat the olive oil in a skillet. Add garlic and heat over medium high heat for one minute.
  • Add the tomatoes and oregano. Simmer rapidly, stirring occasionally, for about 15 minutes, or until thickened. Add salt and pepper to taste. 
  • Meanwhile, cook the pasta. 
  • When the pasta is done, toss it with the sauce. 
  • Place half the pasta in an oiled 9x13 inch dish. Cover the top with half of the Parmesan cheese and half of the Mozzarella cheese. 
  • Cover the top with the remaining pasta. Cover the pasta with the remaining Parmesan and Mozzarella cheeses. 
  • Bake at 400 degrees F for 15 minutes. 
  • Let cool and serve.
