What's For Dinner? Forget About It! Dinner, Soprano's Style!

After watching episode after episode of the first 4 seasons of the Soprano's, I decided to try and make a baked ziti.  I found this recipe from , bought all the ingredients and made it tonight.  It was awesome!  It was almost effortless but tasted so good!  Enjoy!
4 cups ziti pasta or penne pasta, uncooked
2 cups pasta sauce
1 can (398 mL/14-1/2 oz.) diced tomatoes, undrained (I used the spicy ones!)
185 g (3/4 of 250-g pkg.)  Brick Cream Cheese, cubed
1-1/2 cups Mozzarella Shredded Cheese
1/3 cup 100% Parmesan Grated Cheese

Make It

HEAT oven to 375ºF.
COOK pasta in large saucepan as directed on package, omitting salt. Remove from pan; drain. Meanwhile, add pasta sauce, tomatoes and cream cheese to same pan; cook on medium heat 5 min. or until cream cheese is melted and mixture is well blended, stirring frequently. Return pasta to pan; mix well.
LAYER half the pasta mixture in 13x9-inch baking dish; cover with layers of 3/4 cup mozzarella and remaining pasta mixture. Top with remaining mozzarella and Parmesan.
BAKE 20 min. or until heated through.

Make Ahead

The pasta dish can be covered and refrigerated up to 8 hours before baking. Increase baking time to 30 to 35 min. or until heated through.
