Quick Dinner Recipe – Knorr Pasta Sides with Fresh Produce

November 14, 2013 9 Comments

This Knorr Pasta & fresh produce dinner recipe is part of a sponsored post for a Collective Bias® #WalmartProduce #cbias campaign. All opinions expressed are my own. 

In a perfect world, I would have time to cook a homemade dinner every evening for my family. I try my best by creating a meal plan each week to stay on track. But even then, some days fly by, leaving me with no time to make what was planned. That’s why I keep my pantry stocked for quick meals.

Chicken Bruschetta Pasta – An Easy Meal for Busy Days

September 24, 2013 7 Comments

Almost once a week, I found myself trying to get a handful of things done in the afternoon and before I know it, it’s 5 o’clock. I forgot to get dinner prepped. Then I am stressing out trying to decide what I have in the pantry to make a quick and easy meal for the family before my husband gets home from work.

Baked Penne Pasta

May 12, 2011 3 Comments

I made this for the first time this week and the flavor was amazing. I found a recipe on Kraft Foods but made modifications because I like cheesy meaty dishes. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 box of penne noodles
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 green pepper, chopped
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 jar (26 oz) spaghetti sauce
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 tub (10 oz) PHILADELPHIA Italian Cheese and Herb Cooking Creme
  • Garlic salt to taste

Preheat oven to 350°

In a large pot, boil water and cook pasta, drain. In a large skillet, brown meat with green pepper and onion seasoned with garlic salt. Drain meat and return to skillet.

Add spaghetti sauce, cooking creme, and 1 cup mozzarella cheese. Cook for a few minutes stirring until the cheese is all melted. Add mixture to the pasta and mix.

Pour pasta into a 13×9 baking dish. Cover with remaining cup of mozzarella cheese.  Cover with aluminum foil.

Bake for 30 minutes, removing the foil after 15 minutes.

Enjoy!
