One of the most common dinnertime dilemmas I hear from my readers is that they just don’t have the time to come up with ideas and cook dinner when they come home from a long day at work.
That’s why I love casserole dishes like this. They are so quick and easy to mix together, with ingredients you probably already have in the house.
This dish is one of my favorites for an easy dinner! I came up with it a few months ago by just throwing together random ingredients I had in the house. Now it’s on the regular meal rotation in our house!
I had the opportunity to try the new Classico Riserva Pasta Sauce for this recipe. This new line up of pasta sauce is available in 4 delicious flavors: Marinara, Eggplant & Artichoke, Roasted Garlic, Arrabbiata and Puttanesca. I love that these sauces are made with no artificial flavors or added sugar.
This sauce was perfect for this dish! It added so much flavor. I used the Puttanesca variety and loved how it has actual pieces of olives in it. My husband thought I had added olives to the dish this time and was really impressed with the sauce.
This recipe makes a great dinner for a busy night. It’s so easy to mix everything up in the casserole dish and stick it in the oven. You can add a side of sauteéd veggies to complete the meal.
I’ve made this dish when we have friends over as well. It’s really easy to make a big batch and feed a bunch of people. It’s a really inexpensive meal, too.
