[CentOS] Advise on recovering 2TB RAID1

Hi all,
I have one drive fails on a software 2TB RAID1.
I have removed the failed partition from mdraid and now ready to
replace the failed drive.

I want to ask for opinion if there is better way to do that other than:
1. Put the new HDD.
2. Use parted to recreate the same partition scheme.
3. Use mdadm to rebuild the RAID.

Especially #2 is rather tricky. I have to create an exact partition scheme.
Can I just clone the partition table without the data in it using parted? How?

Thank you,
