Easy Peasy Pasta Bake

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
3 garlic cloves, chopped
1 jar of good quality Marinara sauce (or make your own)
1 lb. cooked rotini pasta
small tub of ricotta cheese
2 cups of shredded mozzarella
1 cup of grated parmesan
Pepperoni (I find the mini’s work better)
Salt and Pepper to taste

In a large pot, sautee garlic in Olive Oil until golden. Then add marinara sauce, cooked pasta, ricotta and half of the Mozzarella cheese.  Mix well and then season with Salt and Pepper. You can either stir the mini pepperoni into the mixture or add it as a topping.  Pour into a well-greased 9x13-baking dish. Top with remaining Mozzarella and Parmesan. Put into a 425° oven for 25 minutes.  I would suggest covering with foil after approx. ten minutes (so top doesn't burn).  Serve with some garlic bread.
