Pasta Bake

Super easy, relatively cheap, relatively easy. I’m a starving college kid and I make and eat this ALL THE TIME. Also cool about this is you get leftovers!!!


  • 1/2 jar premade pasta sauce
  • 1 bag shredded mozzerella cheese
  • 1 box pasta (WHATEVER KIND YOU WANT; i use ziti or bowties)
  • 1 can grated Parmesan cheese
  • garlic, oregano, basil (optional)
  • 1 pound precooked hamburger/chicken/meat substitute (optional)


  • Oven
  • Big Pyrex pan or several small pyrex pans (I use a 9x13 pyrex container)
  • 1 big spoon
  • pot and colander

Make time: 45 minutes (ish?)

How to:

  • Fill that pot full of hot water and dump in that box of pasta and get boiling
  • while pasta is cooking, preheat oven to 350F/167C
  • When the pasta is al dente (aka slightly crunchy) drain it
  • put pasta in pyrex pan
  • dump the 1/2 jar of pasta sauce, 1/2 the bag of mozzerella cheese, 1/2 the can of Parmesan cheese, (and if you want it) the pound of meat and a hand full each of garlic, oregano, and basil
  • mix until all the sauce is coating everything
  • stick that sucker in the oven for 20 minutes
  • after 20 minutes, pull it out and sprinkle liberally with the remainder of the mozzerella cheese
  • put it back in for 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted and gooey

You’re done! Eat it!!! And then put the rest in the fridge for later!!! Makes about….6/8 servings, depending on how much you eat. :)
