I’ve made this recipe three times in the last couple months so I had to share it! The first time was for family at Christmas, then I made two pans for families who recently had babies. Each time it was a big hit!

I simplified it by using a jar of tomato basil marinara instead of making my own tomato sauce. I bought most everything at Trader Joe’s.
I wish I had a picture of the pan post-baking but I’m sure you can imagine all that cheese melted and gooey. I think the key ingredient is the fresh mozzarella so don’t skimp on it if you can. The best deal I could find is the 16oz ball pictured for $4.99 at TJ’s. The recipe makes a 9×13 pan so it will feed a lot of people, bringing the cost per serving down.
Now I’m craving this again. I’ll have to write it into the meal plan next week!
