Meatball Pasta Bake, yum yum:)

#1
I had this at the weekend, and it was absolutely delish:)

Meatball Pasta Bake- 10PP
Serves 4

400g (14oz) Lean Beef Mince
1 large onion, chopped finely
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
Low fat cooking spray
175g (6oz) dried penne pasta
2 x 400g cans chopped tomatoes
2 garlic cloves chopped
125g pack mozzarella light, drained and chopped
salt and freshly ground black pepper

You will need a 1.5 litre ovenproof dish

1. In a large bowl, mix together the beef, onion and herbs with some seasoning. Shape into 16 walnut sized balls.

2. Spray a non-stick frying pan with the cooking spray and heat until hot. Add the meatballs and cook for 7-8 minutes until browned all over; don't worry if they are not cooked through as they will continue cooking in the oven. Remove from the heat and set aside.

3. Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 5/190C/fan oven 170C. Bring a pan of water to the boil, add the pasta and cook for 5 minutes or about half the cooking time stated on the packet. Drain well and mix with the tomatoes and garlic.

4. Spoon the pasta mixture into the overnproof dish. Nestle the meatballs into the pasta, top with mozzarella and bake for 25-30 minutes until bubbling.
