    In 12-inch nonstick skillet, add hot water and sauce mix (from Hamburger Helper™ box); stir to combine. Stir in uncooked pasta (from Hamburger Helper™ box) and frozen meatballs.

    Top with cheese and basil; cover and let stand 2 to 3 minutes or until cheese is melted.

  • Try frozen Italian seasoned meatballs. Same convenience, different taste.
  • Top off the skillet dinner with crunchy garlic croutons – added flavor and crunch!
  • Make it fancy by spooning the mixture onto a platter. Top with cheese and basil. To melt the cheese, cover loosely with foil.
