Once your pasta has been cooked drain out the water except keeping ½ cup of the remaining pasta water. Begin mixing the spaghetti sauce, remainder of water, and ricotta cheese in a bowl. Take your pasta and add into the bowl including the ½ cup of mozzarella cheese. Mix up all your ingredients carefully. Once your pasta is covered begin to pour your pasta into any baking dish that has been greased. Sprinkle some Mozzarella Cheese and Parmesan Cheese on top and cover with some aluminum foil. Bake for about 30-35 minutes and remove your aluminum foil. Continue to cook for an extra 10 minutes. Once done pop it out of the oven and its ready to serve!
