I’ve been doing some freezer cooking for when the baby comes and I thought I’d share one of my favorite recipes. I love it because it’s delicious and inexpensive. Actually, I did a freezer swap with some of my friends last week and this is the recipe that I made. I hope you enjoy it as much as my family.
Easy Baked Pasta
1 box whole wheat penne
1 jar spaghetti sauce
8 oz sour cream
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
1/2 lb ground beef, cooked
1 cup shredded Mozzarella
1 onion, diced
1 bell pepper, diced
Step 1: Cook and drain pasta
Step 2: Saute veggies
Step 3: Mix Sauce, sour cream, parm. cheese, veggies and cooked beef in pot over medium heat until sour cream is melted and combined.
Step 4: Add Pasta and combine.
Step 5: Pour into greased baking dish.
Step 6: Sprinkle with shredded cheese.
Step 7: Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.
If freezing, let cool completely, cover and freeze.
To cook from frozen bake at 350 for 45 min-1 hour.
You can easily omit the beef to make it less expensive. We’ve also found that using taco meat gives it a great flavor.
