Toss well and adjust seasoning if necessary. Spread remaining butter into a 9 x 9 inch baking pan. Add a layer of the pasta mixture, then top with 100 mL of the tomato sauce and 100 g of shredded mozzarella. Repeat the layers finishing with a layer of cheese on top. Loosely cover with foil and bake for 45-60 minutes. Allow to cool for 10 minutes before serving.
