Cheesecake Factory Copcat Four Cheese Pasta

My ultimate favorite dish from The Cheesecake Factory is their four cheese pasta. Unfortunately, the closest restaurant is two hours away. I had to create a copycat dish that I could easily enjoy whenever I please. This is definitely comparable to their signature dish and is delicious as can be!

-1 1/2 cup Ricotta Cheese
-2 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
-1 egg, beaten
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
-1/4 cup sliced basil leaves
-8 ounces rigatoni or pasta noodles of choice (cooked and drained)
-1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese
- 1/2 jar Classico Fire Roasted Tomato & Garlic Sauce

-Preheat over to 350. Combine mozzarella cheese, egg, basil, pepper, and ricotta cheese.
-Combine hot noodles, sauce, and ricotta mixture. Bake in 11 x 7 glass dish. Sprinkle with mozzarella and parmesan cheese. Bake 25 minutes covered. Bake addditional 5 minutes uncovered until cheese is melted. Enjoy!!!
