  • 4-5 cups uncooked penne pasta
  • 12-14 oz Pasta Sauce Olive Oil, Basil, Garlic
  • 1-2 cups Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
  • 10 Meatballs

Optional Ingredients

  • Sour Cream
  • Provolone cheese


  • First start by boiling the pasta, don't fully cook (al dente), since it will be baked.
  • Prep and cook meat. I used pre-cooked meatballs so I just cut them into smaller pieces.
  • Layer your pan I used a 9x5 loaf pan. 1/2 the Noodles, Sauce, Meat, Cheese, and REPEAT until pan is full. Then Bake 350F for 30 min. You can make ahead and refrigerate and take out to bake when ready. I like to serve with garlic bread.
