30 minute meals: Speedy Italian Pasta and Meatballs

I love meals that are quick and easy to make, and this one is no exception!

Speedy Italian Pasta and Meatballs
Grocery List:
1 can (14 1/2 oz) chicken broth
1 cup water
1/2 lb mini-rigatoni pasta (3 cups)
1 pkg (12 oz) refrigerated ready-to-heat Italian turkey meatballs
1 box (9 oz) frozen Italian green beans
1 pint grape tomatoes, halved
3 Tbsp reduced-fat Italian salad dressing
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan

Serve with: additional shredded Parmesan

How to make it:
1. Bring broth and water to a boil in a large nonstick skillet. Stir in pasta, cover, reduce heat to medium-high and cook 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in meatballs, green beans, tomatoes and Italian dressing; return to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to medium and simmer 5 minutes, stirring often, until pasta is tender and most of liquid is absorbed.

2. Remove from heat; stir in 1/2 cup Parmesan. Serve with extra Parmesan.
