The sauce for this dish is just like Olive Garden’s Ziti al Forno recipe! Use any pasta for a delicious and easy pasta al forno recipe.

You know I love a good and simple pasta recipe like my Creamy Lemon Chicken Pasta Recipe or my Chicken Florentine Gnocchi Recipe, but sometimes you need a hearty option that’s perfect for meatless Monday…that the kids will eat!

Well this five cheese pasta al forno recipe is a total hit when it comes to a vegetarian pasta recipe.

“Al forno” means “to the oven” so there are many different dishes that can be “al forno”. But, thanks to Olive Garden, the main dish that comes to mind when we think “al forno” is their delicious five cheese ziti al forno recipe.

So, this pasta al forno recipe is a copy cat of Olive Garden’s Five Cheese Ziti Al Forno Recipe. I use whatever pasta I have on hand…ultimately, it’s not the pasta that’s the star of this dish but the sauce! So use whatever you have on hand…I’ve made this recipe using macaroni, ziti, corkscrews, and even egg noodles.
