      I have not tried this yet, but I know I would never add marinara to this - I think it would be delicious without it.

      This had a delicious flavor, just the perfect amount of ricotta and the broccoli was wonderful in it. I do feel like both the pasta and broccoli were a bit overcooked. I think next time I would leave very al dente before baking.

      In school I was always told that I didn't follow instructions well so I thought that I would continue with that pattern and use rotini instead of penne! My grocery store was out of fresh basil so I replaced it with 1 tablespoon of dried basil and used basil/tomato marinara sauce. We all really enjoyed this dish and it was very quick and easy to make. Delish!!! Made for Went to the Market tag. Thanks lazyme!! :)
