Chicken Parmesan Meatball Bake

I love dinners that are delicious, fast, and simple to prepare. This Parmesan Meatball Bake is one of those. There is nothing I love more than sitting at the table and eating dinner with my family. With 3 kids, age 5 and under, you can imagine it’s not always quiet, more than likely a few tantrums, and you can always count on someone spilling their drink πŸ™‚ Regardless of all that, I still think it’s so important to sit down together and eat dinner. I love this meatball bake because it’s simple to prepare, it’s delicious, everyone loves it, and it brings us all together!

Ingredients

    Meatballs
  • 1 lb lean ground chicken
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese [stuff in the green can]
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • Casserole
  • 1 lb (16 oz box) campanelle pasta [or any small/medium shaped pasta]
  • 1 jar (24 oz) marinara sauce, any variety/flavor
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

Instructions

  • Cook pasta according to package directions. Don't forget to salt your pasta water!
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  • While pasta is cooking prepare the meatballs. In large bowl, combine all meatball ingredients and mix together well with your hands (it's the easiest way). Form into small balls, about 1 inch in diameter, and place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or a silpat.
  • Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and reduce heat to 350 degrees.
  • Pour marinara sauce in large bowl, add in cooked pasta and meatballs, gently stir together.
  • Spread half of the mixture into a 9x13 pan [sprayed with cooking spray] top with half the cheese, repeat layers. Sprinkle the top of the casserole with the Italian seasoning.
  • Bake for 20 minutes. Serve immediately.
