Easy Pasta Bake with Mostaccioli and Meatballs
This is an incredibly easy dish to prepare for a potluck dinner or a football party, or just for your family at home. It's easy on the wallet too, because it has few ingredients! Great when served with garlic bread.
- Serves: 4 persons
- ¾pound mostaccioli pasta
- 1(15.5 ounce) jar spaghetti sauce, or more to taste
- 12frozen cooked meatballs, thawed
- 1(8 ounce) package shredded mozzarella cheese
Step 1Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Step 2Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add mostaccioli and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, about 11 minutes. Drain.
Step 3Transfer mostaccioli to a large glass baking dish. The pasta should reach about halfway to the rim of the dish. Cover with as much spaghetti sauce as you like, at least enough to almost cover the pasta.
Step 4Place meatballs in a microwave-save dish and heat in the microwave for about 3 minutes. Spread out on top of the pasta. Cover entirely with mozzarella cheese.
Step 5Bake in the preheated oven until heated through and cheese is completely melted, 15 to 20 minutes.
