2 tsp kosher salt, divided
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
1 (24 to 25-oz) jar marinara sauce
3 c water, divided
1 c whole-milk ricotta cheese
1/2 c grated Parmesan cheese
4 oz part-skim mozzarella cheese
2 tbsp fresh parsley leaves

Step 6: Add 2 tablespoons of tomato paste, 1/2 teaspoon of red pepper flakes, 1 tablespoon of dried Italian seasoning, 1/4 teaspoon of pepper, and 1 teaspoon of salt. Stir and cook for 1 minute or until the colour of the sauce becomes dark.
