Penne Casserole (where you don't have to boil the noodles!)

This is really good recipe I got off of Plain Chicken. It is super fast to throw together, but it takes an hour to cook, so it's great for when you have a million things to do at home after work. You can throw this in the oven and get done what you need to.
Penne Casserole
1 jar marinara sauce (26oz)
1 c. water
15 oz ricotta
2 c. shredded mozzarella, divided
1/4 c. Parmesan cheese
1 lb Italian sausage, cooked and crumbled
1/2 pkg. pepperoni, chopped
8 oz uncooked penne
1/2 t. each salt and pepper
1 t. minced garlic
1 t. Italian seasoning
Combine sauce, water, ricotta 1/2 of the mozzarella, the sausage, pepperoni, parmesan and penne.  Pour into a greased 9x13 pan and cover with foil.  Bake at 400 for 55 minutes.  Remove foil and top with remaining mozzarella cheese.  Bake for 5 to 10 minutes, until bubbly.
