You will need a pressure canner, of course. Check out the Ball Blue Book, it's kinda the canner's bible, and has tested and proven recipes.

It's our Bible in the kitchen on canning days- but not one thing in it with Pasta. :(

Hm. You're right. Wonder if it's because the pasta would get too mushy with canning, and would simply disappear.

If its pre-cooked, then yes it turns to mush-yuk.
But there has to be a way and someone out there with some tips and recipes. After all, how does Chef Boy R Dee do it???

I looked around on the WWW and it seems that commercial canners use a high acid pasta containing ascorbic acid or some other high acid additive.

Lots of recipes for home use as well.

I myself would stay away from it and cook the pasta while the sauce or soup is heating.

I have canned vegetarian chili. Definitely need to use the pressure canner. When I make soup with pasta, I freeze the soup and add the pasta when I am heating the soup. I like to use orzo or another small pasta -- takes about the time to heat the soup as it does for the pasta to cook. A friend cans her chicken and beef stock, adds the veggies, etc. when she uses it.

Can your sauce, freeze your meatballs and cook the pasta when you intend to serve it.

Seriously craig? Do you not get the purpose of canning? And when your power goes out and everything in your freezer goes bad, then what would you eat?
The meatball go into the jar with the sauce.
And there must be a way to add Pasta too where it won't go mushy.
