Why I Love This Recipe

So last night I realized my wallet was empty and my cupboards were pretty darn bare and the family was whining about how hungry they were. I began looking around the kitchen and came up with this dish that turned out very well to my surprise!

Ingredients You'll Need

Pasta Dish:
1 box Cavatapi (or other pasta shape)
1 medium tomato
3 Tbsp fresh parsely, minced
8 0z block fresh mozarella, shredded
1 jar tomato basil pasta sauce

Garlic Spread:
4 Tbsp margarine
1-2 tsp garlic powder
1-2 tsp dried parsley flakes
dash salt
Dinner Rolls


Pasta Dish:

Prepare pasta according to package directions.

Meanwhile, chop parsley and tomatoes.

Shred mozarella, set 1/2 of it aside.

Drain Pasta, place back in pot, add pasta sauce, tomatoes, parsely and half of the shredded mozarella. Combine until even.

Pour into a buttered casserole dish, top with rest of mozarella.

Bake at 350F approximately 20 minutes or until desired tenderness.

Garlic Spread:

Combine all ingredients in a small bowl.

Allow to sit for 5-10 minutes.

Use as butter spread for dinner rolls.
