Bow-Tie Pasta & Meatballs

We all have those days. We're too tired to cook or have run out of time. And, I don't want to measure anything! Well, here's a five ingredient dish that you can make anytime. Just base the amount of ingredients on the size of your casserole dish. I used a small casserole dish and I've listed the measurements for it to the side of the ingredient. I used canned pasta sauce and store bought frozen meatballs, but you could make a batch of your own to keep in the freezer. The uncooked pasta absorbs the water in the dish as it cooks.
Bow-Tie Pasta & Meatballs
Prego Pasta Sauce mushroom & onion(2 cups)
Bow-Tie Pasta-small (1 cup)
Water (3/4 cup)
Frozen Swedish Meatballs (1 dozen)
Mozzarella Cheese (1/2 cup)
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Layer uncooked pasta in bottom of casserole dish. Mix water and pasta sauce. Layer sauce on top of pasta. Top with frozen meatballs. Cover dish with foil and bake for 30-40 minutes or until bubbly. Remove foil and sprinkle cheese over meatballs. Cook another 5 minutes until cheese is melted.

That looks like a keeper! There is something about a cold day that makes me want Tomato sauce. I will be trying this soon!

My kids would be all over this dish! I love that you used pre-made meatballs! This could really be a quick and easy weeknight dinner!

Good idea! I like that even the pasta doesn't have to be precooked. One dish meal. LOVING this.
