  • Then follow our 3 simple steps:
  • Cook pasta as directed on package, omitting salt.
  • Meanwhile, cook meat in 2 Tbsp. dressing in large skillet on high heat 5 min. or until meat is browned on both sides, turning after 3 min. Stir in tomatoes, vegetables and remaining dressing. Bring to boil. Simmer on medium heat 10 min. or until meat is done and vegetables are crisp-tender.
  • Top with cheese; cover. Let stand 2 to 3 min. or until cheese is melted. Drain pasta. Serve topped with meat mixture.

Special Extra

For a nice presentation, simply slide the meat, vegetables and sauce out of the skillet onto the cooked pasta.

    It was ok. I tried the pork version. Kids liked the chops but not veggies of course. I didn't have the Italian dressing & just used olive oil with some garlic salt.

    I'm not a vegetarian, but I typed in Cannellini and this is what came up. Using ingredients on hand, I was a little wary of the ranch, but it came out really well. Even my two yr old liked it!
