Home 5 ingredients or less Easy Pasta Bake

Easy Pasta Bake

by Laura

This recipe is so easy, but so delicious. This also qualifies as a 5 ingredient or less recipe. I adapted this easy pasta bake another recipe I had. It needed some changes to make it the way my family likes it.

You can use any type of pasta you want to. I usually use rotini or bow tie pasta. I also prefer to use Prego 100% natural Chunky Garden Tomato, Onion, and Garlic Sauce. This is a favorite quick Italian meal at my house.
