Baked Penne alla Vodka

This baked pasta was great! It made a ton so it would be perfect for a big family or when having guests over.  Slightly adapted from Garlic My Soul.

1 jar red sauce
1 cup vodka
1 cup heavy cream
1 pound penne
2 cups shredded mozzarella
16 ounces ricotta cheese
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
1 egg
1/2 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp dried parsley
salt and pepper

Heat oven to 375.  Heat the sauce over medium heat in a pot.  Add the vodka, bring to a simmer and let cook for 20 minutes. While the sauce is heating up, boil a pot of water and cook the penne pasta.  Stir the cream into the vodka sauce and let simmer for 5 minutes. In a mixing bowl stir together the ricotta cheese, egg, basil, parsley, salt and pepper.  Stir the pasta into the ricotta mixture and pour into a greased 9x13 dish. Pour the sauce over the pasta and top with parmesan and mozzarella.  Bake for 20 minutes then serve.
