4-Ingredient Microwave Pasta

Serves 1

Hands-on time: 5 minutes

Hands-off time: 13 minutes


1 cup SPAR Brand Penne Pasta

1 cup SPAR Tomato & Basil Pasta Sauce

¼ tsp each salt & pepper, to season

½ cup SPAR Medium Fat Mozzarella Cheese, grated

Serving suggestion:

SPAR Freshline Basil


1. In a medium-sized heatproof pasta bowl, add the SPAR Brand Penne Pasta, SPAR Tomato & Basil Pasta Sauce, salt & pepper, and 1 cup of boiling water. Stir until well combined. *Chef’s Tip: If preferred, add any protein of choice!

2. Microwave for 12 minutes with a microwave cover until the pasta has cooked and absorbed most of the water. *Chef’s Tip: A 1300W microwave was used in recipe testing.

3. Carefully remove the pasta bowl from the microwave and stir until well combined. It should still be saucy.

4. Top the pasta with grated SPAR Medium Fat Mozzarella Cheese before microwaving for 1 minute until melted.

5. Garnish with fresh SPAR Freshline Basil and ENJOY immediately!
