I changed this recipe a little bit to make it easier. I used 26oz cheese & garlic spaghetti sauce, 1/3 cup dessing and added 1 tsp dried basil. I defrosted homemade meatballs and added to sauce. I cooked steamed brocolli and boiled penne plus pasta separately for kids. I tossed it together at the end and added grated parmesan cheese on top. I didn't think it would taste good with italian dressing but it had a great flavor.
