Baked Pasta With Cheesy Meatballs

CookingMyWay's picture
If you use off the shelf pasta, sauce, meatballs, and cheese this is quite easy to do...
  Pasta 16 Ounce (If I'M Not Making My Own I Use Ronzoni (It's The Best Boxed Pasta Out There)
  Pasta sauce 8 Ounce (I Use Ragu Organic - It's One Of The Best I've Found In A Jar, If You Can Find The Sinatra Brand It's By Far The Best I've Had)
  Pre made meatballs 32 Ounce (I Actually Used Some From My Market's Deli Case That They Make Fresh Daily There... You Can Use Any Bagged Brand You Like...)
  Mozzarella cheese 1 1⁄2 Ounce (Please Don't Use The Shredded Kind...)

make the pasta according to the box
heat the pasta sauce and meatballs
mix the pasta, sauce, and meatballs
put in an oven-proof dish
cover with cheese
broil until nice and bubbly on top
let set for a few min before cutting

Had some friends over to watch some football and someone threw out baked pasta for dinner... We had a big salad with this as well however that didn't make the cut... This took all of 20 minutes to make and it's a great dish... :) Nikko
Baked Pasta with Cheesy Meatball sounds like a recipe that takes hours to cook. Fortunately, our chef is putting up this dish in just a few minutes and let his oven does the rest of it. It's a great make-ahead meal also for those who don't like to cook in the night. A cold winter night and piping hot baked pasta are perfect for a family dinner.
