Creamy Baked Ziti

I am in love with pasta. If I weren't already married to the most wonderful husband in the world, I might marry it.

I made this a few weeks ago, and it was amazing. Josh isn't a huge pasta fan so he wasn't so crazy about it, but me and Megan did.

Creamy Baked Ziti

What You Need

4 cups ziti pasta, uncooked
1 jar  (26 oz.) marinara sauce
1 can (14-1/2 oz.) diced tomatoes, undrained
6 oz.  (3/4 of 8-oz. pkg.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, cubed
3/4 cup BREAKSTONE'S or KNUDSEN Sour Cream
1 pkg.  (8 oz.) KRAFT Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
1/3 cup KRAFT Grated Parmesan Cheese

Make It

HEAT oven to 375ºF.
COOK pasta in large saucepan as directed on package, omitting salt. Remove from pan; drain. Meanwhile, add marinara sauce, tomatoes and cream cheese to same pan; cook on medium heat 5 min. or until cream cheese is melted and mixture is well blended, stirring frequently. Return pasta to pan; mix well.
LAYER half the pasta mixture in 13x9-inch baking dish; cover with layers of sour cream, 1 cup mozzarella and remaining pasta mixture. Top with remaining mozzarella and Parmesan.
BAKE 20 min. or until heated through.

This is my new favorite pasta recipe.
