This easy to make meal option is perfect for those nights when you need a quick, yet delicious meal option that the whole family will love. Loaded with veggies and protein, it is a great choice when time is short.

To get started simply coat the bottom of your baking dish with a thin layer of pasta sauce, then add a layer of corn or your vegetable of choice. I like corn since it is easy, so I use corn.

Next, add a layer of cooked pasta (should be al dente), and then a layer of pasta sauce with meatballs. Cover the entire layer of pasta with your sauce.

Once the meatballs and sauce have been added, add your favorite shredded cheese.

Finally, add a layer of pepperoni slices. Continue to layer each of the ingredients until you reach the top of your baking dish (pasta, meatballs & sauce, cheese, pepperoni), ending with pepperoni on top.
