Pasta is such a quick, easy and filling dinner meal. This recipe only requires a few simple ingredients, but it’ll help you get a satisfying meal on the table in no-time. Check out my list of where you can find halal cheeses on the front page under the category, Halal Cheese & Dairy.

Three-Cheese Baked Pasta

Serves 4-6


2 cups marinara sauce

4 tablespoons butter

4 tablespoons extra virgin olive

1 bag Ditalini pasta or any other
type of pasta noodle

¼ pound mozzarella

Asiago cheese

Romano Cheese

Italian flat leaf parsley


  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Cook pasta according to package instructions. Drain and set aside.
  3. In a rectangular baking dish, spray with oil. Add the cooked pasta, sauce and
    cheeses to the dish. Mix well.
  4. Place the baking dish on a cookie sheet to catch any dripping cheese or sauce. Bake in
    the oven, covered, for about 30 minutes. Remove cover and bake an additional
    5-10 minutes or until top has browned and cheese is bubbling.
  5. Allow to cool a few minutes before serving. Garnish with fresh flat leaf parsley.

  1. Mmmm that looks extra yummy. Quick question though, do you know of any halal asiago & romano cheeses? I've never done research of those ones. thanks, love ya! :)
    • wasalaam Sana, how are you? Great to hear from you! I would check with some of the Trader Joe's brands. I know I asked a long time ago, but didn't record which ones I bought. Take care and hope to see you soon, insha'allah!
  2. This looks so good! I wish I had this recipe last night... I could have avoided a pasta failure :) Same question as the others- I have trouble finding halal cheeses and have no idea about asagio or romano. Any tips?
  3. salaam everyone, to answer all your questions, I'd like to encourage you to visit the home page category, Halal Cheese & Dairy. There are a variety of companies I use and trust for either being halal-certified or made using a vegetable rennet. I'm still working on expanding my list of types of cheeses to recommend, so please continue to visit and see the updates. Thanks so much for all your comments!
  4. MashaAllah I made this dish a few weeks ago and it turned out wonderful! There was a nice mix of flavors; everyone really enjoyed it. Thanks Yvonne!
    • Look for a brand that has vegetarian or microbial enzymes and microbial rennet. Try places like Whole Foods or Trader Joe's. I've found them there.
