Baked Penne Marinara

Quick sidenote: I wonder why Marinara is used to mean pasta, tomato sauce and cheese sometimes and it denotes a seafood dish other times?

8 oz penne pasta
1/2 cup ricotta cheese
1-2 cups spaghetti sauce
1 Tbls butter
1/3 cup seasoned breadcrumbs
Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 350. Cook and drain pasta and mix with ricotta cheese. Place in bottom of small baking dish. Place desired amount of spaghetti sauce over the noodles. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Melt butter in small saucepan (or in the microwave) and mix with breadcrumbs. Top spaghetti sauce with breadcrumb mixture and Parmesan cheese. Bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes or until sauce is bubbly and breadcrumbs are browned.
