Mini meatballs are cooked gently in a rich tomato sauce, then combined with penne and cheese and baked until warm and bubbly. Kids will especially love this dish, but it's an all-round family pleaser for sure. Perfect to prepare up to 24 hours in advance, then bake when ready. Cut leftovers in portions and freeze for the week!
The pasta is half cooked, so will need plenty of sauce to finish cooking in the oven. If your sauce becomes too thick, cover the baking dish with aluminium foil from the start and bake for 15 minutes. Remove the foil for the last 10 minutes.
