String Cheese Pasta

This recipe is a whole bunch of oeey gooey cheesyness.  Cheese, Cheese, and more Cheese! 

We love cheese in our family if you haven't already noticed based on many of my recipes.

This recipe is the trifecta!  Quick, Easy and Frugal yet packs a punch of yummyness!  It is also VERY kid friendly.

String Cheese Pasta


(1) box of Penne Pasta (or any other pasta you have on hand)
(2) cans of Italian Seasoned Diced Tomatoes (or 1 Jar of RAGU Spaghetti Sauce)
1 1/2 cup of Shredded Mozzarella Cheese (or more depending on how cheesy you want it)



1.  Cook pasta according to directions on box.  Drain.

2.  Add diced tomatoes or spaghetti sauce to drained pasta.  Simmer on low heat for 5-7 mins stirring often.

3.  Add 1 cup of Mozzarella Cheese into the pasta the last 1-2 minutes, stir until cheese is melted.

4.  Sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup of Mozzarella Cheese on the separate servings of pasta as you are serving.

Pair with a salad and/or some garlic bread. 

You can also add meat into this recipe OR shred some zucchini in it and your kids will never know they are eating vegetables because all the cheese camouflage them.


I am going to have to put this recipe into an almost weekly rotation.  The kids loved it that much!
