Recipe is easy and adapts to many different pastas and sauces

Ingredients:

  • 26 - 28 oz. jar or can of pasta sauce
  • 1 container water (3 - 4 cups)
  • 1 container UNCOOKED bite size pasta (12 - 16 oz.)
  • 1 - 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (or other cheese)

Directions:

Pour pasta sauce into mixing bowl. Fill empty pasta jar with water and add to sauce. This will provide the amount of water needed and will remove any sauce left in the container. Fill empty can or jar with bite size uncooked pasta. Add to sauce and stir. Sauce will be very thin.

Ad

Pour into greased 13x9 inch baking dish. Cover with lid or foil and bake at 425 degrees for 30 minutes. Stir pasta mixture and top with cheese. Bake uncovered 10 minutes or until pasta is tender.

I have used a variety of sauces to make this recipe including Ragu, Hunt's, Prego, and store brands in a number of flavors. I have used both plain and stuffed pastas (ravioli, rotini, tortellini, shells, etc.) I have never personally used macaroni or spaghetti. The macaroni should work, but a jar full of spaghetti would be too much pasta.

I have used both mozzarella and Parmesan cheese.
