I had everything I needed in the house already, which is a huge plus! Maybe you'll be that lucky too!
A jar of pasta sauce You can use any type you'd like, I used Simply Balanced Organic Vodka Sauce.
* You can make this meal using only that, if you'd like. I always have to doctor up jarred pasta sauce, plus I had some veggies that were going to go bad soon and I wanted to use them up. So I added:
1 cup chopped fresh asparagus
1 cup of chopped fresh grape tomatoes
3 cloves chopped fresh garlic
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
NOTE: This is a great no fuss meal. But it's also a great make ahead. I do a make ahead pasta bake probably once a week. In the morning before work, or even the night before, do steps 1-5. Let the pasta bake sit and cool for as long as you can. Then before bed or before you head out the door, cover it with foil and put it in the fridge. When you're ready for dinner, heat up your oven and pop the bake in just as it is. Foil on and everything...this will just help speed things along since it's coming straight from the fridge. Bake it until it's hot and bubbly!
