Baked Penne Pasta

Philadelphia cream cheese came out with some cooking cremes and I wanted to try some of them to see how good they were.  I finally found a recipe I wanted to try.  Here it is.  As my husband says this one is a keeper.
Similar ingredients you would need for a regular pasta dinner.  The only thing is different is the cooking creme.
Chop and saute bell peppers and onions in a little olive oil.
Add the ground beef and brown.  Drain well.
Cook penne pasta according to pkg directions.
Add a jar of spaghetti sauce to the meat and veggie mixture.  You could use homemade sauce if you like.
Add 3/4 cup of the Italian cheese and herb cooking creme.
Mix well.
Add 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
Stir and heat until cheese is melted.
Add cooked pasta.
Pour in a casserole dish that has been sprayed with nonstick spray.
Add the rest of the herb cooking creme to the top of the casserole.
Sprinkle mozzarella cheese on top. Cover and bake 20 minutes in a preheated 350 oven.  Uncover after 15 minutes.
The baked casserole.
Sprinkle with a little Parmesan cheese on top.
