Super Fast Pasta Bake


One dish meals are nice to have in your recipe file.  Who doesn’t love a meal without a lot of clean up?  Today’s recipe is just that.  It is all mixed and cooked in the same dish.  The only other things you may have to dirty is a measuring cup, spoon, and cheese grater.

It is also a simple dish – pasta, sauce, and cheese.  No need to pre-cook you pasta here.  It all cooks in the oven.  Yummy!  I adapted this one from Meals 4 Moms.

Super Fast Pasta Bake

  • 8 oz. elbow macaroni or other small shaped pasta (I used mini bow tie pasta)
  • 4 1/4 cups spaghetti/marinara sauce
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 (14.5 oz) can petite diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese ( I used a cheese blend)
  1. In a 9 x 13 inch baking dish, combine the spaghetti/marinara sauce, water, and tomatoes.  Stir in raw pasta.
  2. Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 45  minutes to 1 hour until pasta is tender.
  3. Top with cheese and place back in the oven uncovered.  Bake a few more minutes until cheese is melted.
