Baked Pasta & Meatballs
1pkg ground meat approx 1 1/2 pounds
2 cups cornflakes, finely crushed (crush first then measure)
2 eggs lightly beaten
¾ tsp Italian seasoning
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp black pepper
1 box pasta (12oz)
2 to 3 jars (26-28oz) marinara sauce (any kind feel free to mix different sauces)
2 cups shredded mozzarella
1. Heat oven to 400 and line a jelly roll pan with nonstick foil-or spray your foil if it is not nonstick.
2. In a large bowl, combine meat, cornflakes, eggs, seasoning, salt and pepper. Shape into 12-15 meatballs, 1/4 cup each (I just made them round, and then after I cooked them and added to pasta, I cut up because my kiddos wouldn't go for the big one!)
4. Coast a 9x13 or larger baking dish with nonstick cooking spray; add pasta. Toss with the meatballs and marinara and 1 1/2 cup of the cheese. Scatter remaining 1/2 cup over dish. Bake uncovered at 400 for 25mins. Let stand 10 mins before serving! Yummy!!!!
