Ranch Meatballs and Pasta – 15 Minute Meal

We love Hidden Valley Ranch dressing.  So when they asked if I’d like to create a new recipe using it, I jumped at the chance.

This time, I decided to give pasta and meatballs a little Western twist with tomatoes and green chilis and a packet of Hidden Valley Ranch dressing mix.

This can be made in the time it takes to boil the pasta.  That makes it a 15 minutes meal and you know I love those!

Here’s what you’ll need:  

ingredients

  • 12 oz penne pasta
  • 2 lbs frozen meatballs
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 Tbs. vegetable oil
  • 15 oz can diced tomatoes
  • 10 oz can diced tomatoes and green chilis
  • 8 oz tomato sauce
  • 1 packet Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing Mix
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

directions

Boil the pasta according to package directions.

Thaw and warm the meatballs in the microwave, 5-6 minutes total.

In a large skillet, cook the onion till tender.

Add the canned tomatoes, tomato sauce, Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing Mix. Stir until combined.

Stir in the meatballs and continue to heat until pasta is done.

Drain pasta.

Combine sauce and meatballs with pasta. Top with cheese and serve.

Serves 6-8 people.
