- 1/2 cup alfredo sauce
- 1/2 cup fresh grated parmesan cheese
- 1 egg beaten with fork
- 1 cup marinara sauce
- 1 bag Italian Style Cooked Perfect Meatballs

- Preheat your oven and grease a mini muffin tin (24 holes).
- Fill each of the 24 holes with pasta mixture and use a fork to twirl pasta together. Press down with clean fingertips to create a nest. Make sure each hole is full with pasta. Repeat with another pan if you have excess pasta mixture.
- Bake for 15 for 20 minutes on the middle oven rack or until just browning. Remove nests to cool.
