Creamy Caprese Pasta

Just looking at this picture is making me hungry for this pasta! This yummy recipe was found over at How Sweet It Is! This recipe is all kinds of delicious and was a big hit with both Gray and I!

1 lb whole wheat penne or ziti pasta
1 cup tomato/pasta sauce
1/3 cup heavy cream
1/3 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
4 oz fresh mozzarella (cut into cubes)
1 pint of grape tomatoes (cut in half or quartered)
5-5 fresh basil leaves (chopped)
fresh mozzarella cut into thin slices (enough to top some of the dish)

Heat oven to 350. Boil the pasta according to directions. As the pasta cooks, heat the pasta sauce in a saucepan. When warm add the cream and parmesan. After the pasta is cooked and drained, add to the sauce. Stir in the mozzarella cubes, tomatoes and basil. Pour into a baking dish. Top with fresh mozzarella circles. Bake for 25 minutes or until bubbly. Serve warm.
