you have to cook the pasta first but not all the way it will finish cooking in the oven.

you will cook the sausage then when it is done add the cream cheese and wait till it melts then stir it and add your sauce but leave a little for the bottom of the baking dish
-1st you put a layer of sauce on the bottom of the baking dish then add a layer of penne pasta
-next you add half of the meat sauce and try to cover all the pasta
-sprinkle half of the mozzerella cheese on after
-start scooping on the ricotta cheese
-add the rest of the penne then the rest of the meat sauce, try to cover all the pasta
-then put into the oven for 20 minutes at 350 degrees
-take it out then add a layer of mozzerella and the pepperoni then put back in the oven for 15 minutes

Yeah, this looks amazing. What order do you put it together in? How long do you bake it and at what temperature? Do you need to cook the penne first, or does it cook enough as it bakes? It's like a pizza made with pasta!

That looks so tasty...

The pepperoni on top is just the icing on the cake - yum! =D
