How do you make this Meatball Pasta recipe?

Here's a quick overview of this recipe (full recipe at the bottom of the post):

  1. Pour tomato soup, water, and Italian seasoning in a pot and bring to a boil.
  2. Add your pasta and meatballs.
  3. Simmer uncovered until the pasta is al dente and the internal temperature of the meatballs reaches 165 degrees, about 15 minutes.

How do you know when pasta is al dente?

The best way - taste it! Al dente means "to the tooth" or firm to the bite. When you taste it, it should be cooked, yet firm and slightly chewy.

For a visual cue, when you bite into it, the pasta should look cooked around the outside edges, with just a bit of uncooked pasta running through the middle.
