Creamy HMR Penne Pasta Bake


The new HMR Program Penne & Meatball entree is great on it’s own but sometimes you just want to shake things up to keep it interesting. Adding the soup and some additional spices can make for a delicious and easy pasta bake.

Creamy Penne Pasta Bake

  • HMR Penne & Meatball Entree
  • HMR Chicken Soup packet
  • Penzeys Roasted Garlic (several dashes worth – you can also use your favorite garlic powder or crushed garlic or leave this out)
  • Crushed Red Pepper (1/4 tsp optional for a nice kick)
  • 3 ounces water

Mix all ingredients together in a casserole dish until fully combined. Bake in oven at 375 degrees for 20-30 minutes until top has browned. Oven times may vary depending on how shallow or deep your baking dish is as well as your oven’s calibration.

    Hi Carol!

    I read your blog from start to finish. You rock!

    Thank you for continuing to post HMR recipes. I’m in phase 1 Decision Free in PA. For our holiday party, I made your biscuit recipe and added Old Bay seasoning, to make them sort of like the cheddar Bay biscuits. They were a big hit, and totally in the box!

    Before I started HMR, I too had taken up running. Now I’ve officially completed a 5k, 8k, and 10k, with my sights on future races.

    Best to you this holiday season!! Thank you for sharing your experiences!
