Cheesy Pasta

Now, we all know you don't come here for recipes. I'm not exactly known for my amazing cooking skills. In fact, most nights, Puff and I sit down to a mean bowl of cereal. Or if I'm feeling fancy, I'll whip up some fish sticks.

But there is one thing I make regularly that Puff just loves. And I love it too. We refer to it as "Three Cheese Pasta." It's super easy and yummy, so I thought I'd share!
What do you need? Well... some bowtie pasta, sauce, ricotta cheese, mozzarella cheese, and shredded parmesan cheese. That's it!
I make the pasta according to the directions on the box & drain it. Then I reduce the heat on the stovetop to medium and throw on a non-stick pan. I pour on as much sauce as I want. (Yeah, there aren't any measurements here!)
Then I spoon on some ricotta...
And I keep stirring on medium heat the whole time. Once the ricotta seems to melt down a little bit, I layer on the mozzarella and parmesan.
Once the mozzarella is nice and stringy, I spoon it out into bowls and top with a pinch of mozzarella.
We serve it up next to some garlic bread or some crescent rolls with some olive oil & garlic seasoning to dip.
Happy Eating!
