Pink Pasta – This creamy tomato sauce pasta uses a blend of Alfredo and marinara sauce. It’s cheesy, delicious goodness! (Gluten Free Friendly!)


  • 1 lb. short pasta, such as penne, farfalle, or rotini (gluten free, as needed)
  • 2 cups your favorite marinara sauce
  • 2 cups your favorite alfredo sauce
  • 1/2 cup loosely packed fresh basil, minced (plus additional for garnish, if desired)
  • 11 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup fresh parmesan cheese


  1. Cook pasta in salted water 1-2 minutes less than the package directs (it will finish cooking in the sauce and in the oven). Drain pasta and discard pasta water.
  2. Meanwhile, make “pink” sauce by stirring together marinara and alfredo sauces in a medium saucepan over low heat until well blended. Stir in fresh basil.
  3. When pasta has finished cooking, toss pasta with pink sauce. Pour into a 9×13 baking dish. Sprinkle with mozzarella and parmesan cheeses.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes, or until cheese is bubbly. Garnish with additional fresh basil if desired.
